Northampton Saints Foundation are gearing up for their most significant fundraising event of the year, as they celebrate their fourth Foundation Day. To ensure the event’s success and maximise its impact, they are actively seeking the support of local businesses and individuals to give back to their community and create a lasting legacy of positive change.
Taking place over Easter weekend (29th-31st) in March 2024, when Northampton Saints play Saracens in the Gallagher Premiership, the day is set to be a remarkable showcase of community spirit and charitable giving as the Foundation take centre stage.
Hosted at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens, the entire Northampton Saints squad will be showing their support by wearing Foundation branded warm-up t-shirts and match-day shirts, with an exciting activation taking place on the pitch at half-time. Supporters will be able to pick up freebies, take selfies in the Supporter Village with Saints players and get their hands on unique signed items and experiences through an auction and raffle to raise funds.
The Foundation is looking for dedicated companies to sponsor various aspects of the day. By lending their support, businesses will not only align themselves with an important cause but also gain valuable exposure in the community and fulfil their company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy.
Catherine Deans, Managing Director at Northampton Saints Foundation, insists the event is incredibly significant for the charity.
“Our Foundation Day is the pinnacle of our fundraising efforts to make a positive difference in our community,” she said. “We are thrilled to invite businesses and individuals to join our biggest event of the year. Our sponsors’ involvement will not only contribute to the success of Foundation Day, but also help make a lasting difference in the lives of those we support.
“Over the next year, the Foundation will continue to expand its reach and maintain its efforts to offer anyone that needs our help, inspiring them to learn, develop new skills, increase in confidence and where appropriate, return to education, training or employment.”
The range of sponsorship packages available for Foundation Day aim to suit various preferences and budgets for those looking to make a substantial contribution and meaningful impact so the Foundation can continue to grow and help more people in need.
