Gloucester Rugby treats all requests for charitable support with the utmost importance. However, given the huge and ever-increasing amount of correspondence we receive on a daily basis, it is simply not possible to fulfil every request. We have therefore, set out the following policy and guidelines to provide clarity and fairness.
Gloucester Rugby’s Charitable Policy and Guidelines
Headline Charity | The Gloucester Rugby Foundation is the Club’s primary focus of our charitable commitments. The Gloucester Rugby Foundation’s goal is to Engage, Educate and Inspire the local community to bring about positive social impact and new opportunities for all through sport.
Our mission is to use the power and inspiration of rugby, along with the values of Gloucester Rugby, to make a difference by:
- Delivering innovative programmes for people of all ages
- Developing partnerships that bring about success based on the needs of local people
- Providing new opportunities through sport for disadvantaged groups
Official Charity Partner | Gloucester Rugby has an official charity partner that will be voted in each year, currently Pied Piper Appeal – a local charity supporting local children.
Chairman’s Charity | this charity is selected by our club chairman and is currently The Fold – a children’s home in South Africa for children that have been rescued from desperate situations. The aim is to create a loving and secure environment where children have hope for the future.
Support for significant campaigns and/or the victims of a major national or international disaster are dealt with by the Club centrally and we do not, therefore, accept individual donation requests for such causes.
Please check against the criteria below before making a charitable request.
