Where are the Saint's Money Men???

Postby Dave McNamara » Tue 17 Apr 2018 11:43pm

Philanthropy is gaining momentum as a business within the business of Australian football and would be attractive to a struggling club like the Saints who are more than $10 million in debt. Tax-­deductible donations to clubs are providing growing alternative revenue streams, particularly where gaming revenue is decreasing or even non-existent.

Geelong are now debt-free, which includes their financial obligation to GMHBA Stadium, thanks to the raising of $16 million through philanthropy over a 20-month period.

It is grounded but it is aspirational, it is eclectic, everyone belongs, and we say how do we capture that as an identity? It would be a good move on so many levels for the club."

We most likely have a few very wealthy supporters, but I assume they are reluctant to donate big time due to historically how the club has been run, plus our inability to win a flag.

Gerry Ryan and I think Summers have between them tipped in over a million, and maybe some other big time donars, but not much else.

Look at our low membership numbers (relative to other Vic clubs) - that also indicates possibly a lower number of the super wealthy that support us.

The question is how we got ourselves into so much debt in the first place.

We should put our hand out to the wealthy benefactors to solve our clubs shitty cash flow issues.

Who would give money to incompetents who will waste it?

So, you know for sure St.Kilda FC in incompetent, is that what your saying?????

If so, just a quick question (if I may?????), why do you support an incompetent organisation?????

Just a question, no malice!!!!!

Does this make you a rich person or a poor person, given I believe you are a member and pay for such membership!!!!!

The reality is that the AFL owes us that money. Our game day losses (and those of the Kangas and Bulldogs) paid off Etihad Stadium for years until it was affordable for them to pay off the rest.

As for the super wealthy - we have them BUT what;s in it for them to contribute?

Philanthrophy is not a business plan. The club need to be self sufficient (it is not a charity).

My suggestion next time (if they ever do get one) we play on the big stage (eg Good Friday) the players show up. It needs to be drilled into them ... its the biggest game of the year .... a final outide September .... An honour to play ...... etc etc.

And not accept "we were abit flat today" ..... WTF ???? If you arent going to get up for the big stage give up now.

Have you ever heard a Collingwood or Essendon player mention anything remotely like that after or before Anzac Day?

Talk it up, build it up, play it up and the support will come.

Once the support is secured the finances take care of themselves.

Does it really need to be said?

Maybe Lindsay Fox will leave us 6 cents in each dollar of his estate?

Has been giving money to Carlscum for years. Must be for his business mates for an advantage, rather than any long lost attachment to the saints. It's a pity. He would be the perfect benefactor behind the scenes, but I'm informed he hasn't contributed anything to us in decades.
