Suncorp Super Netball superstars are calling on fans to get involved with the Confident Girls Foundation’s Give for a Goal appeal to raise money for vulnerable girls around Australia.
Round 4 of Suncorp Super Netball is Give for a Goal Round with a focus on raising awareness of and funds for the work of the Foundation at all the Suncorp Super Netball games.
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.
In Queensland, the Confident Girls Foundation supports the Diamond Spirit Program.
The program is an holistic community engagement program which uses netball as a vehicle to empower and educate Indigenous girls in remote and regional communities. Formerly known as the Indigenous Advancement program, Diamond Spirit has already made a positive impact in the lives of more than 1000 participants in the Far North Queensland communities of Aurukun, Mapoon, Napranum and Yarrabah
We are encouraging everyone to jump on board with Give for a Goal fundraiser by donating at this weekend’s Suncorp Super Netball matches so that the Foundation is able to help more girls than ever before – every little bit helps!
The broader Give for a Goal appeal lasts for the whole month of May.
Any community netballer can get involved with the initiative… clubs, associations, schools and individuals can 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.
The highest fundraiser will receive a visit from a Suncorp Super Netball Give for a Goal ambassador.
