      Making a difference

      Why join the purple bombers?

      Each Year 50% of our profits get split between the Essendon Football Club and The Equality Project

      Essendon Football Club Logo

      In 2020 the Purple Bombers donated 10 x scholarships for people to attend the annual Equality Project Conference at Williamstown Town Hall for free. The scholarships were promoted on social media and all snapped up within 24 hours!

      The Equality Project Logo

      Each Year the Purple bombers will donate 25% of our profits to the Equality Project. The Equality Project is a new national organisation that advocates for LGBTIQ+ rights and host an annual conference across Australia. They also deliver ground-breaking leadership training programs specially designed for the LGBTIQ+ community. The Leadership Training Academy (LTA) is a specialised leadership and media training program for LGBTIQ+ community advocates, change-makers and emerging leaders. The Equality Project has compiled a world-class education program to enable people to build the core skills and techniques that effect positive cultural change.

      At the end of each season we will make an announcement about the specific type of programs our profits are being specifically directed to within the Equality Project.

      In 2018, the Purple Bombers provided a $3000 donation to the Equality Project to help the National Conference held in Sydney in January 2019.
