Our Impact

We are delighted to support a number of exceptionally deserving causes, who have made an enduring and tangible difference within the rugby community.

Our Success

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.
