Support our Junior Development Fund for End of Financial Year benefits!
With June 30 fast approaching time is running out to capitalise on the benefits of donating to the South Adelaide Junior Development Fund before the end of financial year.
The Junior Development Fund was established through the Australian Sports Foundation in 2016 to assist the club in the funding the continued improvement of our junior football programs.
Donations help both the club and also the donor, who is eligible to claim a tax deduction for their contribution.
To date, over $80,000 has been raised through the donations of many of the Panthers faithful from all walks of life.
However, we still have a ways to go to reach our ultimate goal of $200,000, which would see these funds directly ensure our male and female junior football programs are fully funded while the club focuses on critical debt reduction. Meaning we would not have to cut expenditure in the football department and underpin our future success on the field.
My Panthers Journey: 2018 Debutants Liam Fitt and Nathan Kreuger
The improvement of our Talent Pathway has been evident in recent years.
In 2018 alone we have seen six Panthers juniors make their League debut, five Under-18s and four Under-16s named in their respective State squads.
Meanwhile, our premiership-winning women's team consisted of mostly homegrown talent from our junior girls teams. Many of whom are still eligible to play junior football!
Overall, our programs reach approximately 300 of the South's most talented footballers through our U13, U14, U15 country and metro development squads, U16 and U18 teams and U14 and U17 female programs, with many more involved throughout the trialing stages.
Any contribution to the Junior Development Fund helps support the ongoing improvement of these programs.
Make a contribution before June 30 to claim your tax benefits this financial year and know you've played a part in helping the young men and women be part of the best underage program in the SANFL.
