GiveToLocal is an official partner of Somerset 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 Somerset 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 Somerset FA area.
The webinars will be between 7 and 8pm on the following dates:
- Monday 3rd August
- Tuesday 11th August
- Wednesday 19th August
- Thursday 27th August
And Conor Ogilvie-Davidson, Marketing and Partnerships Officer for the Somerset FA believes that GiveToLocal has the ability to help grassroots football clubs across the county. “It is vitally important that, as a community, we stick together and support one another through these tough times,” said Conor. "Many clubs are struggling due to this season’s window for income generation being cut short. The support from the dedicated team at GiveToLocal will allow clubs to unlock the most from their networks. It will allow them to generate sustainable, extra income that will be of real benefit to them. You just don’t get that level of genuine support from real people at other platforms.”
GiveToLocal’s Director of Strategic Partnerships, Colin Stromsoy, is delighted that the Somerset FA is promoting the organisations webinars. “We're excited to be working in partnership with the Somerset 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 Somerset FA we’ll explain how GiveToLocal works and how it can help all clubs and teams develop sustainable, long term funding.”
