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.
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’.
In 2019, the club unveiled a special limited edition jersey to be worn in the fixture against Saints, modelled on the club’s 1998 shirt when Steve made his club debut, with donations once again going to the Foundation.
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.
