Essentially this comes down to giving financial support to sporting clubs and events which we know can make a real difference to people’s lives.
Many of the organisers and leaders are people we know from time spent in the country, but we still expect robust control on whatever funds we provide as well as transparency and clear reporting to ensure the support has been put to good use.
We welcome applications from organisations seeking support. Details can be found on the Apply for Grants page.
As a newly formed charity we need to build up a funding base before we are able to provide support, but we anticipate grants being decided on a quarterly basis.
We would of course love your help in building that funding base. Whether you are an individual or an organisation, please visit our How to Help page for more details.
