The PFA launches its new 'Your Cause, Your Way!' pilot scheme, in partnership with the local giving experts at UK Community Foundations – the umbrella organisation which works with the UK’s 48 local community foundations.
To find out more about the partnership, Leon Mann met Former Liverpool FC and England footballer Jamie Carragher, who has set up his named fund, The 23 Foundation.
Over the past six years, his 23 Foundation has worked with Community Foundation for Merseyside to donate £310,000 to sports initiatives across Merseyside, with even more money being invested for the long-term.
Seeing Jamie’s experience, we want to give members the same opportunity to give back to local causes that really matter to them, in a simple and effective way.
Your Cause, Your Way is a new giving option, enabling players to set up named funds in order to give to charities, community groups or individuals in need across the UK without the worry of complex administration.
