Corporate Support

Here at MFC Foundation we develop long lasting partnerships with companies across a wide range of industries, delivering clear business benefits for them and vital funds for our work in the community.

Our life-changing work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of our corporate partners who support us in a number of ways, including via programme sponsorship, donations, in-house fundraisers and adopting us as their charity of the year.

Ways to work together

We can tailor a mutually-beneficial partnership including any of the combinations below. There are plenty of ways to suit your organisation and objectives.

Charity of the Year

By choosing us as your charity of the year we can work together to build a bespoke calendar of engaging fundraising activities for your employees. Organise your own activities or take part in our fundraising campaigns like Middlesbrough 10K and Ali Brownlee 5K, there’s plenty on offer.

We’d love you to nominate MFC Foundation as charity of the year to your charity champions, senior managers and HR team.  If you’d like advice on how to do this, email our team and we can help.

Sponsorship

We have several high-profile events and campaigns, like the Great North Run, so there’s plenty of opportunity to shape sponsorship packages for a specific part of our work.

Cause Related Marketing

If your brand has a product or service that makes for a good fit with our cause, then a commercial agreement to donate a proportion of its profits to us could be a mutually beneficial partnership.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a great way for employees to make monthly donations to charity, straight from their salary, before tax is deducted. It’s easy for employers to set up and shows strong charitable support.

Strategic Partnerships

If your CSR strategy is aligned to what we do, there could be exciting opportunity to offer pro bono services, share skills or work together at a more strategic level. This could be about changing public behaviour or truly transforming the lives of people from all walks of life across Teesside. Speak to us if you think there is shared synergy in our core purposes that means we should look to team up.

Premier League Summer Sessions Support Young People During School Holidays

THE Premier League will support more than 15,000 children and young people throughout the summer by funding activity run by professional football club community organisations across England and Wales.

More than 50 Premier League and EFL clubs will deliver the free sessions, to enhance the number of opportunities available to young people over the school holidays. Activity will be tailored to suit local community needs and will include football sessions and tournaments, primary and secondary school education sessions, as well as social action initiatives. Several of the clubs will also provide attendees with access to nutritious meals, directly or alongside local partners, as they did during the Christmas and Easter school holidays.

The Premier League Summer Sessions will build on the year-round delivery of the Premier League Primary Stars, Premier League Kicks and Premier League Inspires programmes.

Richard Masters, Chief Executive at the Premier League, said: “The past 18 months have been extremely challenging for young people, especially those who have had disrupted school terms.

“Community teams at Premier League and EFL clubs carry out a huge amount of incredible work all year round and have adapted brilliantly to offer different ways of staying in touch during the pandemic. These school holiday sessions are another way that we and our clubs are supporting those most in need to get active, develop their personal skills and build friendships.”

Premier League Primary Stars activity will inspire children to learn. This will complement what they have been taught in school and at home during the pandemic, by providing them with valuable curriculum-linked sessions covering English, Maths, PE and PSHE.

Through Premier League Kicks, clubs will continue to work with young people to help them achieve their potential, as well as build stronger, safer and more inclusive communities. These sessions, run in areas of high need, will be supported by partners including the police, and will include workshops that cover societal issues like racism and discrimination, focusing on the Premier League’s No Room For Racism initiative.

Premier League Inspires sessions are designed to support 11 to 25-year-olds who are marginalised or at risk of not reaching their potential; supporting them as they move through the education system and early adulthood. Over the summer, there will be a large focus by clubs on supporting Year 6 pupils’ wellbeing as they ready themselves for the transition to secondary school.

The Premier League Summer Sessions are just one of the ways in which clubs have continued to support their communities and the NHS over the past 18 months. Sessions will run until the end of August, when normal weekly Premier League-funded community activity will resume.
