North Wales Crusaders Foundation are now an official charity (number 1195794). The foundation will be the official charity arm of the main Crusaders club.
The foundation’s mission is to inspire the North Wales community to live a healthy lifestyle through rugby league and other sports. The charity will use the power of the main rugby league club to help them deliver their purpose and outcomes, but they will remain independent through their own governance and have six trustees who will oversee the decision-making process.
The foundation will focus on four key areas to support the community.
1. To promote the benefits of being physically active and healthy
2. To provide opportunities for young people to develop life skills through education
3. To provide opportunities for the community to be safer and stronger together
4. To advance the growth of rugby league and sport in the area
The charity will create a community development team to deliver much-needed projects in the local community. The foundation, like most charities, will rely on donations and funding to help achieve their goals. We are asking our Crusaders and rugby league family to support the foundation through donations to help the exciting new charity.
This year is the perfect time to start the foundation as the World Cup will be with us next year and we are confident the foundation can benefit from the publicity and participation that this will bring. It is also the club’s tenth anniversary of being established in North Wales.
