The foundation surrounds itself with individual and institutional supporters, including friends, partners and donors. The board of trustees nominates ‘Friends of the foundation’.
FRIENDS OF THE FOUNDATION
A ‘Friend of the foundation’ is an individual or institution who has demonstrated a particular attachment to the foundation’s cause, whether through their actions, connections or contributions.
At the board of trustees’ first meeting on 23 March 2015, UEFA – the foundation’s founder – was named as a permanent Friend.
A donor is any individual or institution who helps the foundation to achieve its objectives by making a one-off donation or contribution or by leaving a bequest.
Today, thanks to the growing importance of corporate social responsibility in economic and political life, our foundation’s activities and projects are starting to resonate with numerous new public and private partners who support us financially. The sponsors of UEFA competitions, already involved in the football side of things, are increasingly keen to add a social dimension to their activities.
