The Stag Meadow ground in St Leonard's Road was broken into between 1-8am on Saturday.
The thieves broke in through the front gates before smashing doors to the club's main building, damaging the bar area and stealing drinks and iPods.
The club’s kit room was then targeted. Footballs and kit worth more than £1,500 were swiped.
The criminals' also smashed windows, ripped a door from its hinges and trashed two sprinkler heads used to water the pitch.
Founding director Kevin Stott said he is 'gutted'.
"There are moments when you think 'why are we doing it?' when certain members of the community work against us."
He said it will cost more than £4,000 to replace the goods stolen and carry out repairs.
Kevin said it costs £60-70,000 a year to run the club, about £1,500 a week.
"Since Windsor FC was formed in 2011 following the sad demise of Windsor & Eton FC we have worked exceptionally hard to create a club and facility the community can be proud of," he added.
"None of this could have been achieved or can be maintained without the extraordinary financial support of the volunteers who run the club.
"It seems perverse to be undermined in such a way by elements of the very community that we are trying to support."
Committee member and kit man Malcolm Williams called the raid a 'kick in the teeth'.
The public are being urged to alert police if they have any information - or see any of the distinctive footballs stolen.
They have the Combined Counties League logo printed on them.
