Devon FA Team Up With GiveToLocal

We've teamed up with GiveToLocal, to help grassroots clubs in Devon

We are delighted to announce that we have entered into an Official Partnership with the sports fundraising experts, GiveToLocal.

We join 15 other County FA’s and other national sports organisations who also have an Official Partnership with GiveToLocal. This will ensure football clubs across Devon will now benefit from the best available access to this free service along with their ongoing support.

GiveToLocal is available to all clubs affiliated to Devon FA free of charge and their unique model encourages individuals to support their local community club from as little as £3 per month and businesses from £10 a month. GiveToLocal enables everyone to contribute to the ongoing success of their local football club and the broader local community.

Chris French, County Development Manager for Devon FA, believes that GiveToLocal’s model will support clubs to achieve their fundraising goals and he is eager to share this opportunity with clubs - "GiveToLocal is a great model for generating long-term sustainable income that also helps clubs to connect into their local communities. Devon has clubs based in both urban and rural communities and GiveToLocal can help both equally. Grassroots football plays a huge part in so many people’s lives. To many people, it’s more than just a game. It offers a great support network that brings joy to so many people. It’s important for clubs to work with the local people and local businesses within their area to build connections and relationships because this will then improve the quality of experience for all members of their club. That’s what I really loved about the GiveToLocal model, it was truly rooted in the community.”

And Colin Stromsoy, Director of Strategic Partnerships at GiveToLocal, is excited by the opportunity to be able to support clubs across Devon: We’ve had fantastic discussions with Chris and the team at the Devon FA and we’re absolutely delighted to have entered into a partnership with them, said Colin. Devon is not only one of the most beautiful counties in England, but it also has a really forward thinking county FA who are giving their clubs great support. We’re determined to ensure GiveToLocal has a sustained and positive impact for clubs across Devon as it has elsewhere. That’s what it is all about and we can’t wait to get started in 2022!”
