As we finish out the 2017 calendar year, consider allocating some of you charitable contributions to the Washington Junior Australian Football Club, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit tax-deductible charity. The WJAFC runs one of only two youth Australian football programs in the United States. The Saturday Morning Footy program has been running continuously since 2006. The program is provided for free to boys and girls aged 5 to 15. Over the years, the program has taught the rules and skills of the great game of Australian football to hundreds of boys and girls in Arlington and the DMV. Many Australian army and foreign affairs families have participated as well as current and former US military families. We have had US cabinet secretaries, foreign correspondents and NFL players participate in the program. Insurance and field costs run to about $25 per player. All our coaches and administrators are volunteers.
A donation of any amount will help immensely.
The Gershman family has generously offered to MATCH dollar for dollar all donations to the program between now and December 31.
