ABOUT THE FOOTBALL FOUNDATION

The purpose of The Football Foundation is to help vulnerable children in Denmark. Through a number of events, the Football Foundation will aim to raise awareness of child poverty, as well as raise funds for charitable organisations working to improve conditions for vulnerable and disadvantaged children and their families.

 

Our vision is for all children in Denmark to grow up in a safe, loving and caring environment. We believe that all children are entitled to a safe childhood, with love, trust and friendship. This helps to ensure a good and healthy development in the child, as well as social skills, for the benefit of the child, the family and the community.

WHAT WE DO

The Football Foundation aims to regularly organise fun events to raise funds for the benefit of vulnerable and disadvantaged children. This year we are focusing on giving children who grow up in poverty, extraordinary experiences.

 

The Football Foundation will host an exclusive Spring Ball, a gala event to be held annually, offering first class entertainment, prominent guests, surprises and dancing until late into the night. At this event you will also be able to bid on unique auction prizes. The money collected through the The Football Foundation events will be donated in full to help vulnerable and disadvantaged children in Denmark. This year we have chosen to collect for “Børnesagens Fællesråd,” which focuses on child poverty in Denmark. The Football Foundation wants to highlight that child poverty exists in Denmark and wholeheartedly agrees with Børnesagens Fællesråd in stating that:

Child poverty can have major consequences for children in terms of social exclusion and quality of life. Having less money means not only the absence of material things. Low income can also impact on children’s well-being, as they often opt out of participating in birthday parties, leisure and social activities. Children and adolescents growing up in low income families are often likely to feel both emotional and physical pain and to feel unpopular.

 

The Football Foundation is co-operating with Børnesagens Fællesråd to award scholarships towards confirmation celebrations, leisure activities, Christmas help and education for single parents. You can read much more about the important work that Børnesagens Fællesråd does here.
