Step into the arena of change and compassion this Sunday as the Fremantle Dockers proudly present the second annual Purple Hands Foundation Game at Optus Stadium.   

The round 17 match against Carlton is an extraordinary opportunity to raise funds for the charitable arm of the Club, dedicated to forging a brighter future for young people in the Western Australian community.  

At the heart of this transformative mission lies the Purple Hands Foundation, a registered charity that relies on the remarkable generosity of the WA community.  

Fans are encouraged to make their mark and donate $10 to Purple Hands to become an integral part in delivering essential programs that tackle key social issues impacting youth.   

These life-changing programs, including the renowned Kimberley Connected and Kimberley 9's Carnival, Goals aHead, Intercept, and more, focus on crucial areas such as increased school attendance, improved health and well-being, enhanced mental health awareness and fostering positive social behaviours and choices. 


Through the power of sport, the Purple Hands Foundation engages and inspires young individuals to succeed by choice, not by chance, equipping them with the necessary tools to flourish.  

In this journey of making a difference, the Purple Hands Foundation will proudly join forces with WA Police at the game to showcase the collaborative work both organisations are committed to through the Kimberley Connected program and Kimberley 9's Carnival. 

The Power of Your Donation: Let us explore the profound impact your donation can have on these transformative programs: 

Kimberley Connected and Kimberley 9's Carnival: Partnering with the WA Police, these programs support and foster positive social behaviours and regular school attendance through engagement in both school and community activities.  

A donation of $30 covers the cost of apparel and lunch for one student participating in the Kimberley 9's Carnival. 

While a corporate donation of $1000 enables an entire remote school in the Kimberley to participate in the Kimberley 9's Carnival. 


Goals aHead: In collaboration with zero2hero, this eight-week workshop destigmatises mental health issues and empowers year 8 students to seek help when needed.  

A donation of $250 delivers a vital mental health workshop to one class of year 8 students. 


Sensory Room at Optus Stadium: In collaboration with the Autism Association of WA, this serene haven offers a range of sensory activities, providing a tranquil respite from the bright lights and loud noises during game days.  

A donation of $30 will contribute to purchasing a box of sensory resources for individuals with sensory needs.  


All Abilities: The WA All Abilities Football Association strives to ensure that individuals with disabilities can enjoy Australian football like every other Australian.  

A donation of $500 can provide a bag of modified AFL equipment, enabling children with disabilities to play StarKick.
