We’ve already been working with our county Football Association partners to identify grassroots football clubs willing to step up to maximise their fundraising potential and show just how far we can take the positive impact of GiveToLocal past the well-publicised £2,000 per team target!
But now we want to expand the Focus Clubs programme to the 14 additional sports supported by GiveToLocal.
We’re looking for motivated clubs that sit at the heart of their community and recognise just how well GiveToLocal can work for them, clubs who are close-knit, well-organised and will take a proactive approach to testing the boundaries of just how far we can take it!
Being selected as a Focus Club gives successful applicants the opportunity to access a range of benefits.
It’s a chance to lead the way and set an example - demonstrating how teams everywhere can get the most from our innovative service and the support on offer.
Whether big or small, rural or city-based, the perfect Focus Club will be one that is motivated to secure a sustainable income and confident in their ability to get the whole club behind it.
The clubs selected will benefit from a host of additional support from GiveToLocal - including exciting opportunities and incentives….not least the chance to feature in regional and national campaigns.
“We are absolutely delighted with how things are progressing with our Focus Clubs in football,” said Colin Stromsoy, Director of Strategic Partnerships at GiveToLocal.
“Now it has been tested, it is a natural progression to enable clubs in other sports to benefit in the same way.
“Community sport clubs right across the country face the same challenges and coronavirus has only made things much worse.
“However, I’ve no doubt that the right clubs will make a huge success of the Focus Clubs opportunity.
“I would strongly encourage clubs that have a vibrant and active committee and support structure to get their applications in without delay.
“This is a chance to transform funding in the long term, to become exemplar clubs for their sport and to be part of the lasting positive impact GiveToLocal was created to bring about!”
Applications close on Wed 16th September 2020.
