The Club

  • CHARITIES

    We are proud of the considerable work that we do off the pitch in support of charitable causes, using the power of football and the global appeal of Tottenham Hotspur to make a positive difference to the lives of people both at home and abroad.

    Whilst we should love to be able to support the many good causes that exist, the huge and ever-increasing number of requests we receive means that this is simply not possible. We have, therefore, set out the following policy and guidelines to provide clarity and fairness.

    The Club’s Charitable Policy and Guidelines:

    • We then give support and priority to charities in the local areas of our stadium and training centre.
    • National charity initiatives, events such as Children in Need, Sport Relief, natural disasters etc are dealt with by the Club centrally and we do not therefore accept individual donation requests

    TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR FOUNDATIONtottenham-hotspur-foundation

    The Club through the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has a long established, productive and valued partnership with the council and the local community in an area with significant socio-economic challenges such as high unemployment and high levels of crime.

    Tottenham Hotspur Foundation was established with £4.5m of funding from the Club and has since attracted more than £2m of additional funding into Haringey for its projects in the past year. The Foundation directly touches the lives of tens of thousands of people across North London.

    The Foundation focuses on specialist programmes tackling key social issues:

    • Improving achievement
    • Building community cohesion
    • Promoting healthy lifestyles
    • Supporting people with disabilities

    The Northumberland Development Project now provides a unique opportunity to extend our valued role in the area.

    NOAH'S ARK CHILDREN'S HOSPICENoahs Ark Childrens Hospice

    The Club is proudly supporting Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice - North London’s only ‘hospice-at-home’ service for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families.

    The partnership aims to raise awareness of the charity’s work and drive recruitment of volunteers to further enhance the service it has provided to families across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, Islington and Hertsmere since 1999.

    Children in the care of Noah’s Ark have a range of conditions and often complex needs. The services provided by the hospice aim to help children, their siblings and parents make the most of the time they have together and go on to face the future with hope after bereavement.

    Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice relies on volunteers in the community to significantly boost the help available for families - from reading to children and helping brothers and sisters with homework to household chores such as gardening, DIY work, ironing and collecting groceries. This support is vital to parents trying to stay on top of family life while caring for a seriously unwell child.

    SPURS WISHESspurs-wishes

    July 2011 saw the official launch of Spurs Wishes, set up to capture the work already carried out at Tottenham Hotspur by the Club’s staff, management and players for terminally ill fans.

    Each year the Club receives letters and emails from friends and family of supporters who believe that Spurs can play some part in the treatment of terminally ill fans.

    The Club recognises that by bringing a moment of happiness through a memorable experience like this can have a positive uplifting effect, whatever the future holds.

    Spurs Wishes, which exists as a separate initiative within the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, enables the Club to make more Spurs dreams a reality for fans of all ages suffering from terminal illness within the UK.

    If you have a terminally ill relative or friend who deserves to have their wish come true, please email spurs.wishes@tottenhamhotspur.com - please note each case will be considered individually by the organising committee.


    LET'S KICK RACISM OUT OF FOOTBALLkick-racism-out

    Tottenham Hotspur Football Club does not tolerate discrimination in any form at the Club, on the pitch or in the stands. As such, we take part in a number of anti-racism initiatives each season. Together with the rest of the football community, we proudly participate in a week of action in partnership with Kick Racism out of Football, aimed at eliminating racism from the game permanently. This is particularly important to the Club as the Tottenham area is one of the most ethnically diverse in Europe.

    The Let's Kick Racism Out of Football campaign was started by the Commission for Racial Equality and the Professional Footballers' Association in 1993. It is supported by all the game's governing bodies, supporters' organisations and local authorities, and works to challenge racism at all levels of the game. The initiative is also part of the wider Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network. The aim of the campaign is to challenge and eradicate racism from all areas and at all levels of the game.

    SHOW RACISM THE RED CARDshow-racism-the-red-card

    Show Racism the Red Card, part of the FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) network, is an anti-racist charity established in January 1996 with the aim of using Professional footballers as anti-racist role models.

    Although racism is on the decline in professional football, it is unfortunately on the increase in British and European society. The aim of the campaign is to combat racism through anti-racist education, and professional footballers are showing the way in terms of making a stand and fighting racism.

    The campaign has been able to involve hundreds of top footballers and managers, and has harnessed the high profile of these role models to combat racism.
