At Rangers we’re passionate about football, but we’re also passionate about what the Club stands for off the pitch. The Rangers Charity Foundation embodies the strong charitable values of the Rangers Family and a spirit that everyone connected with the Club can feel proud of.

What we do
The Rangers Charity Foundation exists to bring Club, supporters, staff and players together in a unique way to help make a world of difference to thousands of lives through our charitable and community work.
Since our creation in 2002 we have donated over £1.6 million in cash awards and over £2.4 million of in-kind support to hundreds of groups and individuals, making a combined total of over £4 million.
Now in charge of all non-commercial community programmes and of the Rangers Study Support Centre, run in partnership with Glasgow City Council, we are more than ever able to make a positive difference to thousands of lives thanks to the amazing backing of our supporters.Find out more
