      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

      Each year we sponsor 3 Players from the current AFL List to give money back to the club to help them win premierships. This creates an opportunity for members to win tickets to events such as the Season Launch or Crichton Medal.

      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 groundbreaking 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.
