WHAT WE DO
The Philadelphia Union Foundation has demonstrated a commitment to using soccer as a tool for positive change in the community. Through its various programs and initiatives, the organization has impacted thousands of lives and created a brighter future for those it serves. As the charitable arm of the Philadelphia Union, we are proud of the organization's achievements and its ongoing commitment to driving social change in the Greater Philadelphia region.
Since our founding, the Philadelphia Union Foundation has been committed to breaking down barriers and uplifting communities through soccer. Our fundraising efforts range from game-day 50/50s to annual events like the Doop Cup golf outing and the Legends of Soccer Gala. We believe that in order to achieve our goals, we need to support young people in all aspects of their lives, from education to social-emotional wellbeing. We are proud to serve Philadelphia's youth, and we stand committed to our mission of creating brighter futures through soccer.
The Philadelphia Union Foundation is all about connecting with people and building stronger communities. We believe that everyone has a part to play in contributing to a better future, and that's why we offer a variety of fundraising events and initiatives for our supporters. Regardless of your age or level of involvement, there's always something you can do to help make a difference. So why not get involved today and become part of the solution?
One of our main fundraisers is the annual golf outing. This event is not just another round of golf, it is an opportunity for players to experience our signature hole, the snake pit, and to be a part of an important fundraising effort. Our golf outing is a fun and engaging way to play alongside some of the most well-known athletes and philanthropists while giving back to our signature programs.
The Philadelphia Union Foundation is proud to partner with organizations that share our vision of empowering young people and uniting communities through soccer. Our partners include local businesses, non-profit organizations, and community leaders who are committed to making a positive impact in the Delaware Valley. Together, we can create a brighter future for our youth and build a stronger, more inclusive community. Join us in our mission and become a partner today!
For every Philadelphia Union home game, our dedicated team of sellers are selling 50/50 tickets to our fans. By purchasing tickets, not only are fans given the chance to win some extra cash, but they are also given the opportunity to give back to their community. The funds raised through the 50/50 program and other initiatives are used to support our community programs that are aligned with our mission to positively impact the lives of children and families in Philadelphia.
Since our inception, the Philadelphia Union Foundation has been committed to giving back to our community. One way we do this is by holding live auctions around Union home matches, where fans can bid on unique memorabilia. We are proud to say that the Eagles, Sixers, Phillies, and Flyers have all contributed to these auctions over the years, joining us in our efforts to unite and inspire the youth of our community.
A key aspect of our work is our annual gala where we celebrate our signature programs and raise funds. It is an amazing opportunity for us to showcase how we are promoting youth development, increasing access to education, and rehabilitating our ageing communities. By sponsoring our gala, you can help our Foundation promote these programs and further our mission.
