GIVETOLOCAL IS AN OFFICIAL PARTNER OF STAFFORDSHIRE FA AND WE’RE WORKING TOGETHER TO HELP CLUBS ACROSS THE COUNTY DEVELOP LONG TERM, SUSTAINABLE FUNDING
GiveToLocal’s new, interactive webinars make it easier than ever for clubs to understand how to generate additional funding at a challenging time.
Coronavirus has had a huge impact on grassroots football across the UK. Clubs across Staffordshire face an uncertain future and we are determined to support our players, coaches, parents and volunteers at this difficult time. That’s why we’re partnering with GiveToLocal.
Launched in 2019, the grassroots sport service is helping thousands of clubs reach out to people and businesses within their local community. And those clubs are already benefitting from additional support.
Through GiveToLocal, clubs can access a platform which connects their teams with individuals and businesses. In turn, those individual donors benefit from special offers.
At the same time, supportive businesses are offered a unique opportunity to broaden their reach where it matters most. It’s a great model that enables communities to come together.
Everyone can make a contribution. And everyone can benefit.
GiveToLocal is hosting webinars throughout July that will provide clubs with an introduction to how the organisation’s innovative and free service works.
The webinars are completely free for any clubs or individuals involved in grassroots football in the Staffordshire FA area.
Gareth Thomas, Communications and Relationships Officer for Staffordshire FA believes that GiveToLocal has the ability to help grassroots football clubs across the county.
“Grassroots sports clubs are right at the heart of every community and it’s vitally important that we do all we can to ensure that all clubs can survive and thrive when sport is able to resume,” said Gareth.
“Our initial discussions with GiveToLocal - and the research we have done on the service they provide - suggests that grassroots sports clubs could really benefit from embracing their platform.
“The platform is, potentially, a great way for clubs to provide more to their local sponsors, in terms of exposure and their reach to the local community.
“I think now would be a good time for clubs to research and consider embracing the GiveToLocal platform and to share this message with their members and the wider community.”
GiveToLocal’s Director of Strategic Partnerships, Colin Stromsoy, is delighted that Staffordshire FA is promoting the organisations webinars.
“We're excited to be working in partnership with the Staffordshire FA to help clubs across the county secure much needed funds,” said Colin.
“As part of our commitment to the partnership, we are hosting free webinars throughout July.
“With the support of the Staffordshire FA we’ll explain how GiveToLocal works and how it can help all clubs and teams develop sustainable, long term funding.”
