ELECTRONIC SCOREBOARDS - YOUR DONATION APPRECIATED
 Dear Members and Supporters, Please take the time to read this message. Our club has now received registration from the Australian Sports Foundation for both our electronic scoreboards projects and our Mentone reserve facility renewal project. Now we need to get the word out to all Tiger supporters who want to back us to provide better facilities for now and into the future. First up we need to raise $30,000 towards the purchase of two electronic scoreboards (one at each ground) and then $50,000 in 2017 to fit out stage one of the Mentone Reserve redevelopment. Can you spare $50, $100 or more towards the electronic scoreboards? The Mentone Reserve project in particular is a video screen at a cost of around $80,000. We have already been gifted a substantial amount from Peter Kerr, our Senior Team Manger of more than 30 years. ( Peter tragically passed away last January) On top of this, Isaacs Federal MP Mark Dreyfus has backed the club to receive $20,000 in funding. The Southern Road project is a smaller unit at a cost of around $35,000 and so far we have been supported by Hotham Federal MP Clare O'Neil who has backed the club to receive $16,000 in funding. The club is asking for your financial commitment but more importantly, your advocacy to your network of family and friends who may not be involved at the club but support our desire to provide AFL sporting opportunities to the youth and young adults in Kingston and surrounding areas. We believe that the electronic scoreboards will open up a new advertising income stream and assist us to put these extra funds into better facilities for our players. All donations made are 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE and is a simple two minute process. Donations can also be made anonymously to the club. https://asf.org.au/make-donation/electronic-scoreboards-project/ If you are moving into a higher tax bracket, this is the perfect time to donate and reduce your tax payable to the ATO. With June 30 fast approaching, now is a great time to back the Tigers. Regards, Peter Davis Board Secretary 0417 357 634  Full story.  Posted: 28/06/2016

MENTONE RESERVE STAGE 2 FUNDING COMMITMENT SECURED
 On Saturday 18 June, Mark Dreyfus our Federal Member for Isaacs visited the club to announce a funding commitment of $800,000 toward stage two of our Mentone Reserve redevelopment. Stage two is the realignment of the Peter Corboy home rooms back onto Remo Street so that at a future date, Kingston council will support the lengthening and widening of the playing surface to a size similar to the clubs we play against. The club welcomes and thanks Mark and his party's support of our club which continues to grow each season. We are now hopeful that Kingston council will soon finalise their funding commitment to Stage one which will see the release of the $1 million dollar commitment from the Premier Daniel Andrews.  Full story.  Posted: 20/06/2016

Local Federal MPs support Electronic Scoreboards

The Club recently applied for funding under the Stronger Communities Programs towards the construction of electronic scoreboards for both grounds. The Mentone reserve is in the Federal Electorate of Isaacs, Southern Road is in Hotham and local community panels were set up to determine the applications. Mark Dreyfus (Isaacs) and Clare O’Neil (Hotham) have both indicated that our applications have been successful at the local level and they now need to be submitted to the department for final approval. Their electorate contributions are $20K & 16K respectfully. The program requires a matching dollar for dollar ratio so will need to undertake serious fundraising over the coming 8 months. We are hoping to install a fairly substantial LED system at Mentone to allow for player and goal highlight graphics, advertising and live AFL football and the Southern Road LED system to allow for advertising. With increased advertising opportunities the Club will be able to enjoy a new income stream which will allow us to better our facilities and equipment for our players. If you would like to be involved in the scoreboard projects, please email secretary@stbedesmentonetigers.com.au or call Peter Davis 0417 357 634. Full story.
