FC Eindhoven

FCE Foundation

Dutch club FC Eindhoven wants to be an accessible club where everyone can quickly feel at home, regardless of age, background, gender, or football talent. The club has the following mission: There is no unused talent in Eindhoven and the Kempen. In addition, the club will be more visible and, above all, do more for the Eindhoven resident. To really get a place in the life of this Eindhoven resident, FC Eindhoven wants to enter the neighborhoods and districts with activities, initiatives, and events, so that people can be helped. The club realises this through the FCE Foundation.

The FCE Foundation focuses on children and young people. In addition to the untapped talent:

  • People with a distance to the labor market
  • People who are (temporarily) in a difficult position
  • People who feel they are ‘on the sidelines’ and do not know how they can capitalize on the opportunities that exist in the Brainport region.

The projects are solved under three pillars: Healthy, Happiness and Equal. Any initiative, activity or event established by the FCE Foundation is under one of several of these interrelated pillars.

  • Healthy – Both physically (exercise, healthy lifestyle, nutrition) and mentally (feeling good about yourself, self-confidence, team play, perseverance)
  • Happiness – Everyone is ‘entitled’ to fun and a (social) network, the Foundation offers concrete help to people who could use a helping hand
  • Equal – Every person has talent, and FCE wants to help those who are at risk of being left behind to develop their opportunities and talents
