Hibernian Community Foundation Improving Lives THrough Football

Hibernian Football Club has a long and proud tradition of working to support local communities. The creation of the Hibernian Community Foundation as an independent charity in 2008 signalled a clear commitment to step up the efforts to have wider scope and greater impact.

Since it was established, the Hibernian Community Foundation has brought opportunities and enjoyment to many people. The creation of the Hibernian Learning Centre in the South Stand at Easter Road Stadium in 2009 has enabled us to support the community in many different ways and is the hub of all our activity.

The Foundation has contributed to ground breaking work in disability football, support for people moving into employment, educational tours for local schools and various activities to improve the health and fitness of male and female members of the Hibernian family. And the breadth and depth of our activity continues to grow.

Key to our approach is partnership with fans, volunteers, Hibernian Football Club and a wide range of organisations who share our hopes and aspirations. We know that by working together we can achieve much more – creating positive impact in our community and bringing a sense of achievement and enjoyment for all who are involved.
