RICHMOND FOUNDATION CLUB
‘Supporting the day to day running and future of our club’
The Richmond Rovers FIVE Dollar Foundation Club is a fundraising initiative to support Richmond Rovers Rugby League and Sports Club Inc.
Monies raised will be tagged strictly to be spent on the mundane costs associated with being able to run this club from week to week, year to year. As sourced from Richmond’s 2018 Audited Accounts, last year the general operating expenses came to $26,065:
Audit and accounting 2878 Electricity 4331
Licences/Fees and Levies 1892 Insurance 1798
ARL fees and levies 1479 Repairs and maintenance 2951
Telephone 770 Ground Rental- Council 500
Cleaning 4432 Water rates 3511
Richmond receives approximately $5,300 annually from Auckland Rugby League's Club in the Hub, leaving a shortfall of $20,765. Up until now Richmond RRL have sourced this shortfall primarily from gaming trust grant applications, however, these funds are becoming increasingly difficult to secure, placing our club in a vulnerable financial position.
The concept for this initiative came from Richmond stalwart Peter Ah Kuoi some twelve years ago. Since then he and a select few of our members have consistently supported Richmond with their $5 weekly or $20 monthly Automatic Payments. Their unwavering support over the last twelve years is our inspiration.
Currently there are nine (9) Richmond supporters who have created Automatic Payments which brings in a total of $2,780 per year. Ideally we would like to grow this to amount to $20,000 per year to meet our annual operating costs. To achieve this, Richmond’s goal is for another 68 Richmond supporters to sign up to this initiative and start their Automatic Payments.
