We set up GiveToLocal to address a problem – how do you create sustainable funding for local sports clubs and give them the opportunity of the future they deserve? And we have already benefitted from the enthusiasm and support in arriving at a solution to that problem by working with thousands of clubs in 21 different sports across the UK. As well as attracting the interest and gaining the support of prestigious sporting body partners, sport professionals and the business community along the way.
In a short space of time, we have taken on a rapidly growing team of likeminded people who all believe in the power of community sport to change lives.
As well as that joint sense of mission, we have also developed a strong culture and set of shared values that bond us together:
Believing in the power of sport
Fundamentally, we believe from direct personal experience that lives spent involved in local sport and being part of community sports clubs are far richer. That, after all, is why we are here – to help sustain local sport and at the same time support local business.
Making a positive difference
We’re passionate about what we do – determined to deliver against our mission. And the way we do that is by being down-to-earth, honest, hardworking, all about solving problems, making things happen and moving forward.
Saying it like it is
Internally, we communicate directly, openly, and honestly. Because experience tells us that’s the best way for people to own their tasks and deliver on their promises. To get up every single day and get things done.
Our vision for the future is an ambitious one. We are determined to give community sports clubs everywhere the future they deserve.
Enjoying the journey
Yes, we are here to make a difference, but we are also here to enjoy the journey. We are determined to build a culture that makes people feel valued – positive about getting up each day and going into work.
