Community Partners

Hawthorn Football Club is proud to have a major community partnership with beyondblue, as well as relationships with various other community organisations. 

These relationships form the Club’s community partners.

Through these partnerships, the Club is able to assist in raising awareness and funds, as well as giving experiences for their members in any way that it can.

The Hawks encourage their members and fans to become familiar with these organisations that are a part of the Hawks family.


Hawthorn is proud to support beyondblue as the Club’s Major Community Partner. The partnership sees the Club take a strategic approach with beyondblue to help raise awareness of depression and anxiety and to help reduce the stigma of these illnesses in society.

The Club is involved in beyondblue events throughout the year, including the match-day activation of the beyondblue Cup.

If you or someone you know is experiencing depression or anxiety, visit or phone 1300 22 46 36.

Starlight Children’s Foundation

Hawthorn Football Club is proud to have developed a strong partnership Starlight as we understand that living with illness or injury can cause enormous strain on the lives of children and their families. The pain, loneliness and isolation that sick children feel dominates their lives, and they often miss out on normal experiences that healthy children take for granted.

Starlight provides programs integral to the total care of seriously ill children – while health professional’s focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to lift the spirits of the child, giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and be a child again.

Through the partnership the Club is able to provide memorable experiences to seriously ill children, for example opening our doors for VIP training sessions, offering match day experiences, game tickets and much more.
