Nine 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 matching donations on our crowd funding platforms for the funding of nine recovery-linked projects near each of our clubsup to a total of £500,000 matched against all donations received on or by 31 August(details here).
Once you have donated you can also show your support by sharing campaign messages on social media and fundraising for a project.
