The Football Foundation is the United Kingdom’s largest sports charity, investing £30m into improving the country's grassroots sports infrastructure each year with money provided by its funding partners: the Premier League, The FA and the Government (via Sport England).
Launched in 2000, the Football Foundation awards grants to applicants that go towards building new local sports facilities, such as changing rooms, grass or all-weather football pitches or multi-use games areas for schools, local authority facilities or sports clubs.
The Foundation has also delivered large-scale sport CSR programmes, including the Mayor of London: Sport Facilities Fund, on behalf of Mayor Boris Johnson and his Commissioner for Sport, Kate Hoey MP, as well as the multi-award winning Barclays Spaces for Sports programme that has created 200 new or refurbished community sports sites across the UK.
