Suncorp Super Netball comes together to Give for a Goal
in support of Confident Girls Foundation
This weekend’s Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) is Give for a Goal Round and will see teams, players and sponsors unite to support the Confident Girls Foundation’s grassroots fundraising appeal.
The round will mark the launch of the appeal, a campaign raising money for vulnerable girls around Australia.
Principal sponsor Suncorp, are showing their support by “giving for a goal,” donating $25 for every goal scored during this weekend’s games, a commitment that Foundation CEO, Nadine Cohen is thrilled by.
“The support of Netball Australia’s principal partner Suncorp in kicking off the appeal is fantastic. We are incredibly grateful for their commitment to helping improve the lives and prospects of vulnerable girls around Australia,” said Cohen.
The weekend’s matches will also see SSN players get behind the cause, trading their normal shoelaces for purple shoelaces, the colour of the Foundation.
“We are humbled by the support and backing that our partners, the SSN, its teams and players have given us. Everyone has been so welcoming in allowing us to help raise awareness and funds for the Give for a Goal appeal through this weekend’s round.”
The Confident Girls Foundation is a unique charity focusing on empowering vulnerable girls around Australia, utilising netball as the mechanism in achieving this.
The Foundation funds programs that help vulnerable girls achieve their dreams by highlighting and helping eliminate key drivers of gender bias including, financial barriers, lack of leadership opportunities, isolation, gender stereotypes that negatively affect young women, and barriers to physical activity.
The Give for a Goal appeal asks clubs, association, schools, and individuals to fundraise by asking those around to donate for each goal scored in a selected netball game. All money raised will go towards programs that focus on helping vulnerable girls become confident girls.
“We want the netball community to show their support and help give back to a cause that so many can relate to. For decades netball has played an integral part in Australian female’s lives and many can attribute the sport in helping them develop into who they are today,” said Cohen.
