Football Foundation

The Football Foundation run a number of different grant funding programmes. For the best advice about these programmes it is advisable to contact the Derbyshire FA.

Floodlights available through the Shared Access Scheme for Football Clubs

This scheme allows clubs to potentially benefit from free floodlights
and other capital investment through The FA's association with Shared Access, a telecoms infrastructure provider.

This scheme offers clubs the chance to receive free floodlights at no cost to
the club. Shared Access will pay for and erect floodlights for local football
clubs. These floodlights will house state-of-the-art wireless antennas and
where available fibre connections, enabling enhanced local broadband
penetration and mobile phone coverage. Click here for more information.

McDonalds Kick Start Programme

McDonalds Kick Start Programme is a grant scheme for everyone who's involved in community football. With up to £75,000 available this year, McDonalds Kick Start want to help you out by awarding cash grants to the most deserving clubs throughout the UK.

Funding is available from £500 to £2,500.

McDonald's FA Charter Standard Kit Scheme

The McDonald's FA Charter Standard Kit Scheme is part of a four-year programme providing thousands of Nike kits to junior football teams.

It looks like this fund might be on hold at the moment. Because having checked their website again in September 2016 it still details that they will reopen the programme in the summer of 2015.
