It’s the aim of the Adelaide Football Club to further entrench itself as “The Team for all South Australians” by providing a positive influence on the South Australian community. The Club is proud to connect and engage with over 40,000 people through our range of inclusive community programs such as Aboriginal Youth Leadership, Country Crows, Crows in Clubs, and the ‘Live Right, Feel Bright’ Schools program.

The Crows in Clubs program is a great opportunity for football clubs around South Australia to get involved with the Adelaide Football Club, and get up close and personal with our players. There are many benefits of joining our program, including heaps of giveaways and exclusive invitations to Club events. Several lucky clubs will also have the chance to form a guard of honour as the Crows run out onto Adelaide Oval before a game.

The ‘Growing With Gratitude’ Program aims to improve the mental health, thoughts and habits of primary school children and developing an attitude of gratitude by promoting kindness, mindfulness and happiness. The program consists of a presentation conducted by AFC Community Development Staff, including videos with the Crows Players, giveaways,and a fun-filled guest appearance from our club mascot Claude the Crow. Each student will receive Crows merchandise including a Crows Scrapbook with activities, games, competitions and information relating to the ‘Growing With Gratitude’ Program.

The Country Crows Program provides the Adelaide Football Club with an opportunity to show its appreciation to our country members and supporters, and give back to rural communities throughout South Australia. Each year a number of football clubs are chosen to host a Crows football clinic, with more than 100 kids from nearby schools chosen to participate in each clinic. In an effort to reach out to more people and communities, the Club will continue to expand the Country Crows Program in 2015 with the help of our new program sponsor CRT – Your Local Bloke.

The Adelaide Crows Children's Foundation was established by the AFC in May 2005 to manage the many requests for support received from the community. Each year the Foundation grants $100,000 to worthy SA charities with a mission to support ‘children in need’. To date, over $1,000,000 has been distributed to those less fortunate. In addition to monetary support the Foundation also hosts player visits to hospitals several times a year and has donated countless signed guernseys, footballs and posters to charities for use in their fundraising activities.
