The Rugby League Foundation is a superb way to support and develop the Rugby League. It works right at the heart of Rugby League providing assistance to young people so that they can enjoy Rugby League and develop as people. By donating to the Foundation, you will be helping to bring more young people into the sport and providing opportunities for them to experience the amazing things that Rugby League has to offer.
The Rugby League Foundation is a charitable body whose purpose is to support the development of sport with small-scale awards (normally to a maximum of £10,000) specifically in the areas of disadvantaged young people, universities, schools and the development of their local communities.
The criteria are listed in the deeds, however, as a rule of thumb; Trustees prefer to consider awards where the Foundation can actually make the difference between a project being able to run and it failing to start.
