The Foundation receives money from the very top of the professional game and also from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport through Sport England. It then uses this money to leverage even more partnership funding, to deliver a programme of new and improved community sports facilities in towns and cities across the country.


The Foundation also funds projects that increase participation in football and other sports and address some of society’s key challenges, such as social inclusion, health, education and equalities.


Meanwhile the Foundation runs a range of specific grant streams dedicated to giving rapid but targeted support to thousands of clubs and community groups through its Small Grants, Junior Kit and Goalpost Safety Schemes.


Our mission is to improve facilitiescreate opportunities and build communities throughout England.
