Inspire and educate; integrate and engage; mentor, lead and support

Hawthorn Football Club is widely known as the Family Club. The label has been attained because of the club's innate desire to support not just Hawthorn people, but the wider community, ensuring a better outcome for all. Hawthorn's community programs seek to achieve this through support, engagement, promotion and education.


Donations and requests

Hawthorn Football Club is engaged in a variety of community programs and charitable organisations and as such donates time and resources to these throughout the year.

The club recognises the importance of assisting the wider community and supporting various organisations in their fundraising endeavours, and has a procedure in place allowing individuals and organisations to purchase signed memorabilia for fundraising efforts.

We encourage all members and supporters to attend the club's open training sessions as promoted on the homepage where players will sign autographs at their discretion after training.
