We are a Charitable Foundation dedicated to changing lives through the spirit of rugby.
The Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation was founded in 2012 with the sole aim of giving back to a remarkable community. We quickly realised that our specialty lay in creating and developing events that people wanted to attend, with the joint benefit of raising significant funds for deserving causes.
We now collaborate with charities, not for profits and individuals who align with our vision & mission. Our preference remains to support smaller organisations that can substantively benefit from our grant funding.
Our values underpin the way that we operate as a Charitable Foundation, and run through all of the work that we do. Teamwork, Community, Wellbeing, Compassion, Integrity & Inclusivity are what define us.
Given our background, teamwork and camaraderie are hugely important to us. The core tenets of cooperation, common purpose, loyalty and responsibility go a long way to defining who we are as a charitable foundation.
Community is at the heart of everything that we do. The Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation provides a sense of belonging, companionship and ultimately self-worth to many.
We support a range of programmes that endorse positive physical, social and mental wellbeing.
Our focus is upon positively changing the lives of those that are in need. Demonstrating compassion is vital in achieving this.
The Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation continually strives to be ethical and transparent in everything that we do.
We stress at every opportunity that everyone is welcome at the Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, disability, sex or sexual orientation.
