The Men of League Foundation is a membership-based Non for Profit organisation that provides emotional, physical and financial support to the men, women and children of the rugby league community.
The Foundation assists past players, administrators, referees and volunteers across all affiliated levels of the game, subject to the necessity of their needs. Necessitous circumstances are defined as someone in genuine need and unable to overcome that need from his or her own resources.
Funds are raised under an approved deductible gift recipient status. All financial assistance is subject to specific criteria.
Emotional and physical assistance is provided in many different ways, with volunteers around the country providing pastoral care, along with providing referrals to aligned professionals if required.
