Network. Support. Enjoy.

Working independently of Sunderland AFC, we need to raise in excess of £3 million to continue making such a positive difference to lives throughout the North East.

Support from businesses is crucial towards enabling us to grow and continue making this difference. There are lots of ways your company can get involved, such as nominating us as your Charity of the Year, entering teams and individuals in or sponsoring our events or donating your time and expertise to support our work directly.

By partnering with Foundation of Light, we will generate positive PR to raise your brand profile plus many more benefits for you and your company.


Support with Confidence

  • Almost 70% of SAFC fans feel more positive about companies that support Foundation of Light
  • Reach key audiences and enjoy fantastic events with a professional and reliable charity.
  • 88p of every pound go directly into project delivery


Reach your audience through Foundation of Light

We offer excellent opportunities to communicate your business' message to key audiences across the region by giving you access to communications channels through which your messages can be carried including:

  • Foundation of Light Social Media channels with an audience of over 5,000
  • Sunderland AFC programme and other matchday devices reaching over 40,000 fans at every home game

We can also produce visibility reports demonstrating where and how messages have been shared and, where possible, can calculate the advertising value equivalent.
