SEASON REVIEW 2014 |15

Liverpool FC Foundation ? The Club's official charity

ABOUT US

FOREWORD

This was a great season for the LFC Foundation, and my first year in post. I have been hugely impressed by the dedication and dignity of the LFC Foundation team, and the results they achieve each year with the thousands of participants taking part in our extensive range of sporting development, educational, and health programmes. I vividly remember the beaming smiles of the LFC Foundation team from Plantation Primary School when they won the national final of the Premier League schools tournament in May 2015. They really did embody the joy and health our programmes bring to thousands of young people every day of the week.

Another highlight for me was the All-Star Charity Game we held at Anfield stadium in March 2015, featuring Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher as captains of the all-star cast. It was a great day for the LFC Family, and we were thrilled to raise ?1million to support our programmes and those of our charity partners.

I am really looking forward to guiding the LFC Foundation over the coming years, and developing new ideas and partnerships to maximise our impact. It really is true that Liverpool FC is the greatest football family in the world ? and we will do all we can to support communities locally and around the world to be healthy and happy.

Andrea Cooper, Head of Liverpool FC Foundation

WHAT WE DO

Liverpool FC Foundation is the official charity of Liverpool Football Club. The Foundation raises funds, develops partnerships and delivers programmes that engage people through their passion for LFC and football, and helps them to become: healthier, improve their life chances and contribute positively to their community.

WHY WE DO IT

Being a part of Liverpool FC is like being part of a family, and that means looking out for each other - particularly those in need. We believe in bringing communities together and raising aspirations, because our family deserves health, happiness and the best opportunities in life.

HERITAGE

Over the last two decades, Liverpool Football Club has carried out community work within Liverpool's local and global communities. The Liverpool FC Foundation was formed in 2010 to build upon this legacy using the LFC crest to help inspire positive and lasting change in people's lives.

Former player and founder of the community department, Brian Hall, was instrumental in establishing Liverpool FC's community outreach, and his hard work and dedication lives on through the work carried out by the LFC Foundation.

VISION

We have been working hard for over 20 years to deliver initiatives that help people build a better future for themselves and others. Over the past year alone we have had a positive impact on over 20,000 programme participants in the UK and across the globe.

The ambition of the Foundation is ever growing. The success of the All Star Charity Game was a huge achievement raising ?1million for charitable projects across Merseyside. Our ambition is to engage and serve more widely across the LFC family - raising awareness of the full scope and value of the work we do, and developing more opportunities for fans to get involved.

HOW WE DO IT

We engage people through their passion for football and Liverpool FC. We leverage the global support of the Club to serve communities in the UK and around the world.

We aim to have the greatest impact possible on people's lives - both at home and across the world. Our initiatives fall into four main focus areas:

1. Sporting participation Helping people to be more active, building and uniting communities through football and other sports.

2. Improving life chances Helping people to reach their full potential through a range of initiatives including health, education and employment projects.

3. Inspiring social action Empowering LFC's international family of fans to make a positive contribution to the work of the Foundation and the issues they care about in their own communities.

4. Supporting other charities Enabling trusted partners to do more of their work, by using the unifying power of our Club crest.
