Hawthorn Indigenous Program

Our vision is to close the gap in Indigenous health and education by delivering programs that focus on improving the education, mental health and social/emotional well-being of Indigenous people.

Our aim is to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to reach their full potential.

The announcement of a donation of one million dollars over five years for the club’s Indigenous Program was a first for the Foundation. The innovative partnership with the Epic Good Foundation encompasses sustainable foresight and unsurpassed loyalty. Through initiatives such as these, Hawthorn hopes to generate lasting relationships with Indigenous communities and help bring about real change nationally.
