Hull FC work with a number of charities and charity partners in a variety of ways, whether it be through donating main shirt sponsorship, releasing shirts to highlight charity partners or donating prizes for charity events.
Hull FC continue to work with various local and regional charities in many different forms, including the club’s own registered charity the Hull FC Community Foundation.
Make A Difference Foundation
‘Make a Difference, Together’ feature on the club’s new shirts for next season to help raise awareness for the charity who raise money for children with disabilities in the region to give them special experiences and opportunities whilst they face a number of personal challenges, as well as offering support to families.
Hull FC forward Liam Watts is an ambassador for the charity alongside the reigning Miss Great Britain, whilst recent fundraising events have included cycling from Hull to Wembley for this year’s Challenge Cup final.
The Airlie Birds will be supporting the initiative by contributing additional memberships and providing extra special experiences for the young fans, including the opportunity to spend time with players and the chance to be mascots at home games.
Steve Prescott Foundation
One of the club’s most high-profile charity partnerships, Hull FC’s link with the Steve Prescott Foundation has grown year on year since the Foundation was set up in 2007.
In 2015, Hull FC waived away any sponsorship opportunities for the front of the away shirt, instead giving up the space to the Steve Prescott Foundation and donating a portion of each shirt sale to the Foundation.
Since 2014, the year after Steve’s untimely death, Hull FC and St Helens have played each other for the ‘Steve Prescott Cup’, taking the aggregate score from the two regular Super League season fixtures between the clubs to decide the winner.
Hull FC Community Foundation
Hull FC have always been one of the most proactive organisations in the city and in the sport of Rugby League when it comes to their work in the community, with the club’s Community Foundation continuing to enhance, develop and expand even further.
The Hull FC Community Foundation is the official charity of Hull FC and delivers a range of projects under the four pillars of Participation, Education, Health and Social Inclusion.
Sport and Rugby League has the unique ability to raise spirits and unite different ages, sexes, ethnicities and socio-economic groups in a shared passion, and the Hull FC Foundation looks to improve the lives of over 40,000 people every single year.
As a registered charity, the Hull FC Foundation ensures that the club’s fantastic work in the local communities is further enhanced through local strategic partnerships within the public, private and voluntary sector.
