Since we opened in 2018, our aim has been to make a real difference to thousands of lives. Our focus is on supporting the whole community to raise educational attainment, increase skills and access to employment opportunities as well as enable people to develop healthier and happier lives through our sport and wellbeing programmes.
About the Foundation of Light
Proceeds from the Beacon are donated to SAFC's official charity, Foundation of Light. Over 20 years, the Foundation has supported over half a million people from across Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham by tackling some of the region's biggest challenges including, obesity, unemployment, anti-social behaviour and poor mental health.
Just £4 will provide a disabled child with specialist sport classes, whilst £10 helps the Foundation teach a family to cook healthy meals on a budget. Every pound you spend with us makes a real difference.Donate to the Foundation of Light
