Why are we looking for funding?
We are looking for funding to help support the young females in Kent and their ambitions to play football at the highest level possible. We are providing twice-a-week training and weekly matches in the Girls Junior Premier League One, the tools provided for training and facilities are of a high quality and this has only been possible due to generous sponsorship.
We believe that young females have always been secondary to the boys academy systems, which is why we have created a female centric academy that isn't dictated by a male parent club. We feel that it is time we balance the scales and provide females with the same opportunities, treatment and support as boys academies receive.
This club unfortunately cannot run for free and does cost money for training pitches, match day hire, referees, match kits and equipment for the year. Any donations would make a huge difference and can help towards the longevity of this opportunity.
Sport England have launched an ‘Active Together’ campaign whereby they will match any funding raised through Crowdfunder, to a maximum grant of £10,000.
Thank you for reading and considering our campaign. We hope you are able to support our cause and the opportunity for all Kent-based footballing girls to be the best that they can be.
