Ten Clubs. Thousands of staff. Millions of fans. For Recovery.
At Manchester City FC, we’re bringing together our staff and fans to help our communities get back on their feet. Cityzens Giving for Recovery is a 12-month campaign bringing together all City Football Group clubs, focusing our donations, expertise, facilities, resources and voice, on making a positive difference to the recovery of our communities.
As part of this we are funding ten recovery-linked projects near each of our clubs. Click on the projects below to find out more and donate.
To date, City Football Group have matched £500,000 of donations pound for pound, raising over £1,000,000, through Cityzens Giving for Recovery. This includes funds raised on GlobalGiving (outlined below) and wider fundraising activities undertaken by each CFG club and charity partner.
