The 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.
We carry out our work under seven key pillars – Potential, Healthy Lives, A Better World, Dreams, Giving, Everyone And Anyone and Our Local Community.
Our Potential programmes provide thousands of people with the opportunity to learn, grow in confidence, improve their employability prospects and identify routes to positive destinations such as further education and volunteering.
We run a range of employability programmes for young people and adults in our SQA Approved Centre at Ibrox, as well as operating as a Youth Hub in association with Job Centre Plus.
Our school-based Hub in the Community initiatives place a full-time member of Foundation staff within our partner schools to assist with raising attainment, increasing positive post-school destinations and enhancing transitions links from primary to secondary.

Our health and wellbeing programmes are tailored for people of all ages and abilities, from Walking Football for over 50s and our Recovery Drop In project for recovering addicts to a range of fitness programmes for everyone from school aged children to adults.
We also run two mental health initiatives, Team Talk and The Changing Room, which help to build resilience and provide a safe and caring environment in which to talk.

A Better World
We work with charity partners each season to fund projects that have a lasting and significant impact locally, nationally and across the world.
We have long running partnerships with the world’s leading children’s charity, UNICEF, and locally with Glasgow City Mission and the Glasgow Children’s Hospital charity. We also select a range of services related charities to work with each year, and a National Charity Partner.
To date, we have donated over £6 million in cash and in-kind support to charitable organisations since our inception in 2002.
The Foundation helps those most in need of a boost via the Rangers Charity Dream Fund, providing special Rangers experiences for children and adults whose lives have been impacted by the likes of disability, illness, bereavement or other challenging circumstance.
Our twice a season Dream Day is a huge highlight, with our guests meeting the entire first team squad and watching them train at the Rangers Training Centre before heading to Ibrox Stadium for lunch and a Stadium tour.

We are very proud of helping thousands of fundraisers support causes close to their hearts every season by making in-kind donations and arranging bucket collections on a matchday. We also assist various community initiatives such as our local food bank and give out match tickets to good causes throughout the season. Find out more HERE.
Everyone and Anyone
The Foundation is wholeheartedly committed to championing and celebrating diversity, which is reflected in our support for the Club’s Everyone Anyone campaign and the programmes we run under our Everyone and Anyone pillar, from Autism Friendly Football to our flagship school-based Diversity Wins initiative.

Our Local Community
Being a good neighbour is important to the Foundation, and we are proud to be playing an active part in the Govan Thriving Place initiative which aims to improve the quality of life for people who live and work in the local area. We also organise a Christmas Party for local older people and funded summer holiday packed lunches for children in the Drumoyne area, as well as other local initiatives.
