Working with Individuals and Families

Jamie Carragher’s 23 Foundation

Jamie Carragher set up the 23 Foundation through the Community Foundation for Merseyside at the beginning of 2009 with the proceeds from his charitable Testimonial Match and matched funds secured from the Government by us. The 23 Foundation seeks to provide the youth of Merseyside with the means to make a difference in society by giving them an outlet through sport and education. It distributes funding to both community groups that are working with young people and to individuals who are looking to further their sporting careers either through coaching or via participating in sporting competitions.

Mark McQueen Foundation

The Mark McQueen Foundation was set up by the McQueen family from Liverpool in loving memory of their son Mark. Administered by the Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside, The Mark McQueen Foundation was launched in 2008 and aims to support young men struggling with emotional and mental health issues. The Foundation’s main aim is to help reduce the rate of male suicide across Lancashire and Merseyside and to support young musicians and musical activities that engage with young men to reflect Mark’s passion for music.

We can help with individual giving and family giving by developing bespoke and personal plans to support causes that you are passionate about.
