The Cronulla Sharks gain our reputation as the ‘Community Club’ by utilising the profile of our players and the Game to create social impact and bring about meaningful change. We do this through our charitable foundation Sharks Have Heart.
The year that was
Looking towards the future!
In August 2022, we will be releasing our refreshed Sharks Have Heart strategy for 2023-2026. The strategy includes four evidence-based signature programs which will support a healthy, inclusive, connected community and a thriving sport sector. Our signature programs focus on target groups including Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people, people living with disability, young people, and our ageing population. The strategy also includes Heartfelt Moments, these actions lift the spirits of those within our community who are facing adversity including those in hospitals and aged care. Finally, our From the Heart giving activities within the strategy will see us partner with four charities each season. These charities will be able to utilise the partnership and our brand to support their own social impact programs and expand their reach. The more support we have from generous donors, the more our programs and our potential to reach those in the community who need us grows.
Right up until Thursday 30th of June you have the chance to make a fully tax-deductible donation to our Sharks Have Heart Foundation, offsetting your tax and helping Sharks Have Heart make a tangible difference in the community. All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.
A donation of $75 will provide a free enrolment to a Mega Jaws clinic to a member of our community who has a disability.
A donation of $250 will train a local sports club volunteer in Mental Health First Aid.
A donation of $500 will provide two schools with a sporting careers development seminar tailored to young women during Women in League Round.
Whether it’s a one off or an ongoing donation we welcome your support and commit to investing in creating change.
