The Launch of the Wyong Roos Foundation

It always has and always will be a focus of the Wyong Rugby League Club Group to assist the local communities. To enable us to do this effectively we have created a Foundation and formed a committee of people who share our vision of continuing to care and support our community.

The Wyong Roos Foundation strive to invest in projects that are going to improve the lives of people within our immediate community who are facing challenges or are disadvantaged, whether it be socially, economically or physically. The committee consists of 8 members, all sharing a close relationship with the Wyong Rugby League Club Group and a passion for helping the direct communities surrounding our venues. The Foundation allows the Wyong Rugby League Club Group to focus on assisting smaller groups who attract little funding and assistance from government and large charitable organisations and who aren’t big enough to generate significate fundraising income of their own.

The Foundation likes to ensure that our focus and our vision is met when providing funding, therefore the committee has discussed and agreed upon the following funding guidelines.

Criteria Outline

The following criteria is provided as a basis of funding eligibility:

  • The applicant can either be an individual, a group or a volunteer organisation

  • The applicant is unable to seek all necessary funding through other channels
