Fundraise for SWB

Does our mission of using soccer as a vehicle for positive change resonate with you? Are you passionate about ensuring that the soccer field remains an inclusive place where all young people have the opportunity to reach their full potential?

Fundraising is one of the ways you can put this passion into action. Not only will fundraising support our work financially, but it is also provides a platform for advocacy – you can share with the world how soccer is truly making a difference.
