Rangers Football Club “plays for everyone” and recognises our responsibility to supporters and the wider community.
That is why the passion and commitment which surrounds the Club has been used to make a difference to people’s lives via charity and community work which has an ever growing impact on society.
The Rangers Charity Foundation, which has donated over £3.5 million in cash and in-kind support since its inception in 2002, recently took over responsibility for Rangers award winning Community Programme and development of the Rangers Study Support Centre, which is run in partnership with Glasgow City Council. All charitable and community activities associated with the Club are now delivered under one umbrella, with an ambitious vision to make a positive and lasting difference.
