"The Foundation will ensure the Club builds that important 'nest egg' for those important developments AFL clubs require from decade to decade. No longer can clubs rely totally on profits from day-to-day business to advance. Hiccups that once could be fixed with the odd thousand dollars, now cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. To ensure the future of Hawthorn Football Club please support the Foundation and the Bequest Society."
