We are delighted to support a number of exceptionally deserving causes, who have made an enduring and tangible difference within the rugby community.
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 speciality 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.
The Foundation has raised over £600,00 in charitable funds since it's inception in 2012.
The Foundation has supported 70 charities over the previous 11 years, which range from local, national to overseas intiatives.
The Foundation has supported a wide range of causes, which we have condensed into three main categories; Health, Support and Rugby related initiatives.
Some of our stories and case studies
The Cardiff Rugby Community Foundation use the power and values of sport to inspire, engage and improve opportunities for all people within our community.
The Serge Betsen Academy aims to raise funds for the relief of child poverty, sickness and distress in Cameroon by providing children’s centres education, healthcare and sports facilities. The organisation’s mission is to bring children together to see a future outside the poverty by providing access to simple, but critical, things like books, pre-school, health foods and places to play rugby and exercise.
Action for A-T aim to speed up the process of identifying a cure for Ataxia Telangiectasia or treatments that delay or prevent the disabling effects of this devastating childhood condition. They do this by seeking and funding high quality peer-reviewed medical research both in the UK and around the world.
