Become a 2020 Purple Bombers Member

It’s never been easier to sign up as a Purple Bombers member. 

By signing up and becoming a member, you are making a difference. You’re not only contributing to the long-term goals of the Purple Bombers, but you are also joining the movement to end homophobia both in Australian rules football and sport in general.

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.
