The LFC Foundation Community Initiatives Fund has been created by the LFC Foundation and supported by Liverpool Football Club, is intended to support and assist local groups or organisations who have great ideas to create a lasting project or initiative in the L4, L5 and/or L6 postcode areas within the Anfield and Everton wards.
Following on from the community event held at Anfield Stadium on Thursday 9th November 2019 and feedback received from local residents and Ward Councillors, the LFC Foundation is now pleased formally launch the Community Initiatives Fund and invite local groups or organisations to bid for funding that will help to deliver new and exciting activities and programmes in their area and help make a positive impact on our neighbourhood.
The fund is being managed and administered by the Liverpool Football Club’s official charity, the LFC Foundation.
In April 2019. Liverpool Football Club committed to make a donation into a grant fund, each time a concert or other major event is held at Anfield Stadium, for reinvestment into the community.
To thank the local community for its continued support, LFC’s Red Neighbours team has agreed to match the £30,000 the amount donated, meaning registered charities and other not-for-profit community groups and organisations who meet the fund’s eligibility criteria can apply for grants of up to a total of £60,000 - which represents the total sum of the 2019/2020 funding pot.
Registered charities and constituted community groups/clubs who meet the eligibility criteria will be able to apply for grants of up to a total of £60,000.
The community who are intended to benefit from the initiative/project is those located within the L4, L5 & L6 postcodes in the Anfield and Everton Wards.
