ABOUT US

THE ENGLAND FOOTBALLERS FOUNDATION (EFF) WAS ESTABLISHED BY THE PLAYERS IN 2007 TO ENABLE THEM – AND FUTURE ENGLAND SQUADS – THE CHANCE TO COLLECTIVELY DONATE THEIR MATCH FEES AND TIME TO SUPPORT GOOD CAUSES.

As well as raising vital funds, the players give their time and use their profile to put smiles on faces, raise awareness of particular issues and promote positive change to help make a meaningful difference to the lives of others.

Activities undertaken by the players include appearances, awareness campaigns, fundraising events and retail partnerships.

Over the last seven years the England Footballers Foundation has proudly supported many charities close to the players’ hearts including Rays of Sunshine, The Honeypot Children’s Charity, WellChild, Together for Short Lives, Cancer Research UK, Help for Heroes, The British Forces Foundation, The PFA’s charitable initiatives and Help Harry Help Others.

Most recently the England Footballers Foundation announced The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK as our Anniversary Partner for 2017-18. Players will be donating their England match fees and time to help to tackle bowel cancer and raise awareness of the symptoms of the disease which claimed Bobby’s life at the age of just 51.  The partnership will play key role in the EFF 10 year anniversary celebrations in 2017.

In October 2014 the players announced a four year partnership with the world’s leading children’s organisation, UNICEF, with an initial ambition to help prevent malaria but with a wider objective of protecting children from danger both at home and overseas.

“We set up the England Footballers Foundation to help causes that are close to all our hearts.  We’ve teamed up with UNICEF and The Bobby Moore Fund to try and help make a real difference to people’s lives.”

The England Footballers Foundation has teamed up with the world’s leading children’s organisation, UNICEF, in a new four year partnership that will help tackle malaria; a disease that still claims the life of a child every sixty seconds.

#BeatDisease… Join The Team

Due to disease, millions of children aren’t even able to reach their fifth birthday which is absolutely shocking. All the lads are really proud to be supporting Unicef’s Children in Danger campaign, to help keep more children safe from disease.”
