Friends of the Foundation

Man and Foundation staff member shaking hands pitchside

We rely heavily on the generous support of our local business community to help us achieve our mission. In response to corporate feedback we have introduced our Friends of the Foundation scheme. Friends of the Foundation donate a minimum of £500 a year and help us in a number of ways, including:

  • Increasing the funding available to support disadvantaged people in Teesside
  • Assisting us to spread the word about the work we do
  • Helping us plan for the future growth of the charity

As a member of the network, you will receive a number of benefits, including:

  • Networking at events with other Friends of the Foundation Members
  • A personalised certificate for you to proudly display
  • The use of our supporter logo to demonstrate your CSR credentials
  • A copy of our quarterly newsletter
  • Your logo on the partners page of our website
  • A PR story in the #UTB match-day programme, on our website and across our social media channels featuring your business
  • Priority booking for MFC Foundation events, including our annual dinner, golf day, ladies day and many more!

The funds raised through Friends of the Foundation membership in 2018 will be used to:

  • Fund our award winning Stepping Up Programme which supports children struggling to transition between Primary and Secondary School
  • Develop our programmes that support those struggling with poor mental health
  • Grow the range of disability focused provision provided in community venues allowing individuals to access activities which they have not been able to access before.
