The Football Foundation has been established to unite the football community in Queensland for the love of our game.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for everyone involved in football to thrive, by creating a sense of community and nurturing the importance of acceptance and understanding at all levels of society.
As a not for profit organisation, Football Queensland will further develop and strengthen football across the state through donations made to the Football Foundation.
Our initial goal of $250,000 from donations will make a significant impact on grassroots football.
We believe that in order for football to truly excel in Queensland, we must strengthen three important pillars. Those pillars are:
- Every Income
- Every Gender
- Every Ability
The Football Foundation aims to provide children from low-income families in Queensland with opportunities to play at the highest level and pursue their football dreams, regardless of affordability and socio-economic status.
Donations made to this pillar will go towards sponsoring talented young children identified by PlayStation 4 NPL and Football Queensland Premier League clubs, who are unable to afford registration fees to play at this level. Ultimately, this will help reduce the loss of talented young players to other sports and thus contribute to the increased quality of football within our state.
There is a striking gender gap in the participation and development of females within sport in Australia. The Football Foundation aims to provide all females in football with the appropriate support and avenues to excel on and off the field.
Donations made to this pillar will help fund the delivery of innovative programs that will contribute to the growth and development of female footballers and coaches in Queensland.
We are committed to helping women and girls in football realise and achieve their dreams, by funding the development of female coach education programs, ensuring playing facilities are suitable for female teams and improving high-performance player pathways.
People facing learning, perceptual and physical difficulties face immense challenges within the sport system and are under-represented in both participation and high-performance sport. The Football Foundation aims to support children and adults of all abilities, by delivering more football programs around Queensland to further develop Paralympic Football.
Donations made to this pillar will also help support the Queensland Paralympic team by identifying young Paralympian prospects and helping players transition to elite pathways through improvements in coaching, facilities and social inclusion programs.
