GiveToLocal has developed an innovative ‘incentivised giving’ approach that helps grassroots clubs become more financially sustainable, supports local businesses and helps ensure there is a great grassroots experience for players, coaches, volunteers and everyone associated with the club
For grassroots football to continually grow and improve, requires us to work in partnership with many different organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
We work with County FA’s, National Governing Bodies (NGB’s), leagues, professional football clubs and a range of well-known commercial brands, all of which support our aims and objectives for grassroots sport and share our values.
GiveToLocal is proud to support the FA’s Grassroots Football strategy. We share the FA’s vision of an inclusive game, being played more often and by more people across the country. We are determined that in our role we can help the FA ensure that not only are clubs more sustainable but they can look to the future with confidence.
To support the FA in driving up standards of governance in grassroots football, GiveToLocal is only available to those clubs that hold FA Charter Standard or FA Community Standard status. We validate all Club applications with the FA to ensure only accredited clubs can access our service. We proactively encourage clubs who have not achieved FA Charter or Community Standard status to work with their County FA to achieve it, supporting them in doing so where possible.
GiveToLocal already has more than 22,000 teams registered throughout England, with teams in every County FA area. While we support clubs and teams directly, to maximise the impact of GiveToLocal, we are also actively supporting County FA’s.
