Please Donate to Maccabi before EOFY- We need Your Support

Sport is an integral part of Australian life and Australian Jewish life. For 90 years, Maccabi Victoria has been at the forefront of promoting sport, health, teamwork, leadership and fair play benefitting thousands of members of the Jewish community regardless of gender, ability or financial circumstances.

We need your support to continue providing essential equipment, training & coaching courses, fee relief for the financially disadvantaged, support of disabled players, and other programs that benefit our 23 clubs and young members of our community who might not otherwise get involved in sport.

"When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his or her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness. "
Sir Donald Bradman
