The Rangers Charity Foundation exists to be a force for good on behalf of the Rangers Family, showing compassion to those in need, tackling inequalities and creating opportunities for people of all ages to change their lives for the better.

Our comprehensive range of programmes in the community reaches thousands of children and adults offering life-changing opportunities in education, health and wellbeing, employability and diversity and inclusion.

We are very proud of helping thousands of fundraisers support causes close to their hearts every season by making in-kind donations and we assist various community initiatives such as our local food bank. Since its creation in 2002, the Rangers Charity Foundation has donated over £5.8 million in cash and in-kind support for worthwhile causes.

The Foundation has a new ambitious three year strategy which is embodied via seven key pillars. We are a Foundation for: Potential; Healthy Lives; Our Local Community; Everyone and Anyone; Dreams; Giving; A Better World.
