Within the Community and Business Development pillar sits all of the charity’s traditional fundraising provision, with a dedicated fundraising team offering a comprehensive calendar of events throughout the year, giving Evertonians the ideal opportunity to raise vital funds for the Charity’s pioneering schemes.
In addition to helping individuals, Everton in the Community helps other charitable groups improve the lives of local people and delivers the Club’s external charities strategy across Merseyside. Every year Everton in the Community organises the donation of merchandise and signed memorabilia to help local charities and not-for-profit organisations raise funds in order to continue their own vital work.
In addition to local charities, the Club is keen to lend their backing to national initiatives including Children in Need, Comic Relief, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Sport Relief and the Poppy Appeal. Everton in the Community also supports the Club in organising events to bring the community together and facilitates the appearances of members of the first team squad to help raise awareness of various good causes throughout the city.
