Weʼve raised £2,670 to help fund delivery of the Street Soccer Academy for the 2018/19 season to help homeless & vulnerable young people in Kent change their lives
- Maidstone, UK
- Funded on Tuesday, 31st July 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Our vision is to bring an end to homelessness and poverty in Kent (and England as a whole) for disadvantaged youths (under 25) and to empower them to join our inspirational football-themed personal development programmes .
To help achieve this vision, we at The Street Soccer Foundation recently hosted a STREET SOCCER SLEEPOUT at Priestfield Stadium, as an exclusive once-per-season twilight event. We had a number of business leaders, managers, company owners and founders, community leaders, CEOs and business executives attend from across the County of Kent - all who want to help us help fight homelessness & poverty across Kent & Medway.
The Street Soccer Sleepout event at the home of Gillingham FC brought together the local Kent business community through the power of football to have us all team up to collectively help raise money and awareness for sleeping outdoors for one night. Monies raised from sponsorships and donations go towards our sustainability target for the season ahead.
** Our Ultimate Goal: We are now seeking to cover all operational costs to run The Street Soccer Academy during 2018/19 in Maidstone, Medway and Canterbury throughout the year, helping us to support up to 100 homeless and vulnerable young people in the year ahead.
We would be hugely grateful for your help and support, specifically in 2 ways:
1) DONATE HERE TO SUPPORT THE STREET SOCCER ACADEMY: By clicking the button to donate what you can towards our funding goal, helping us sustain the delivery of the programme throughout the coming year.
2) PROMOTE this page to help us raise awareness of The Street Soccer Foundation and our Academy programme: via your personal and professional networks online.
