Exeter Chiefs Foundation
How it works
There are two main areas to fundraising for the Exeter Foundation.
The Foundation has been set up by a group of professionals, conceived in part from the need to formalise the charitable fundraising at Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club. Monies collected from bucket and car park collection is designated for the 17 local charities who gather the collections each season.
These monies go into a central designated fund. At the end of each season, these monies are distributed between all the organisations that have taken part in the collections over the playing season. All organisations are required to apply in the spring for the upcoming season to be part of the Foundation and receive designated funds.
Non Designated Funds
All monies raised via other fundraising events, including any fundraising that happens for the Foundation outside of the Foundation Events team themselves, goes into the undesignated pot. This means that this money can be put towards upcoming local projects that are occurring around the city and its surrounding areas via application process.
