Where does my Belnorth membership money go?
All Belnorth FC revenue raised through fees, sponsorship and other means is directed towards payments to the ACT Government, payments to Capital Football and the general costs of running the club. A rough guide to the breakdown is:
- 40%-45% of revenue goes to Capital Football and FFA costs.
- 25%-30% of revenue goes to ACT Sportsgrounds for field and facilities hire for training & home grounds during the trials and winter season.
- The remainder on planned costs for equipment maintenance & replacement, presentation days & trophies, coaching & technical development, and other general costs of running a club.
Each year, depending on the accuracy of budget forecasts for player numbers and any unforeseen events, the club will run at a small surplus or deficit.
Belnorth Family Rebate
Early in 2016, our committee voted to instate a rebate for families to provide some financial relief to families with three or more active players at our club. The rebate becomes active on the third, fourth and fifth family members and equates to a 40% refund for each of these players. To claim this rebate the eligible family need to complete the Family Rebate Request Form and email the request to the club Treasurer – firstname.lastname@example.org
