FC United Launch: Fund the Foundations

Fund The Foundations is a fan-led donation scheme, ring-fenced for the sole purpose of reducing the debt on our Broadhurst Park home.

One of the many wonderful things about fan owned football is having a voice and doing things ourselves, our way. The feedback and ideas put forward from members on the forum, and the hard work of supporters and staff since, have been integral to getting this initiative off the ground.

And now’s the time to back it!

Since the huge collective effort in raising funds to help towards our dream of owning our own home, it’s been suggested that there’s not been one big project for the whole fanbase to get united behind, excuse the pun. So we hope that as many fans as possible can support this new scheme, where the objectives are clear, and together we can proactively tackle our outstanding debt issues. Every pound donated will get us a pound closer to our goal of becoming debt free.

We appreciate that times are incredibly hard with the ongoing cost of living crisis, and we’ve taken this into consideration with the donation amounts, as we don’t want any fan to feel excluded. Direct debit payment plans start from as little as £1 a month, equivalent to 25p a week, and one-off donations are also more than welcome. We’ve set a target of raising £20,000 in the first year and if every member were to commit to £1 a month we’d easily reach this amount, however for those with bigger pockets then please feel free to dig deep!

It’s not all take, take, take though and we’ve been busy organising rewards as a way of saying thank you, and the lucky winners will be picked at random each month from those who sign up to the scheme.  We don’t want to give too much away at this point and ruin the surprises to come, but we’re excited to announce that we’re kicking things off by offering the incredible brand new home shirt to one lucky supporter…but you’ve got to be in it to win it as they say! We’re also planning to hold a number of special events throughout the year to generate funds and have some fun along the way.

Whatever FC means to each and every one of us, or whatever our hopes for the future, chipping away at this debt is absolutely essential to getting there. So we hope you can get behind the Fund The Foundations scheme and help support YOUR CLUB.

Please Note: This is a fan-led scheme and we need help and input from as many dedicated supporters as possible to assist with the planning and execution of the initiative. Whether it be media and communications support, fundraising and event planning, or whatever you feel you could bring to the table…we’d love to hear from you! Email: developmentfund@fc-utd.uk
