Always Hawthorn Bequest Club

From its first VFL game in 1925, Hawthorn Football Club struggled to make its mark until the club’s first premiership in 1961. Since that first glory, the Hawks have added another twelve magnificent cups to the trophy cabinet over the next six decades.

The club enjoyed a golden era between 1971 and 1991 where it won eight flags, however this success did not equate to long term security and by 1996 Hawthorn was at the point of merger.

Hawthorn Football Club invites you to join the Bequest Club, an integral program within the Foundation, to help ensure the club never reaches that point of uncertainty again, instead remaining strong and viable for generations to come.

By leaving a bequest to the club in your Will, supporters will help Hawthorn remain strong well into the future, providing for their children and grandchildren the same sense of joy and passion they have enjoyed over the years.
