Toulouse FC’s CSR projects in the community are in the DNA of the club. It started with a programme of training for children in disadvantaged areas in Toulouse. In 2003, the club has created the programme “Jeunes Citoyens Supporters”: the goal was to create a community of young TFC fans and educate them on the positive values of Football.
Regularly, the club won national trophies for its social engagement in its community: 1st Prix Educafoot by the “Agence de l’Education par le Sport et la LFP” (2009), 1st Prix “FDJ Ensemble pour le handicap” for the creation of its Blindfoot team (2015), 1st Prix “Foot pour Elles – Fondaction du Football” for its programme on the development of football for women (2017).
To grow and to be more efficient, the TFC Foundation was created in 2010, being the 3rd foundation in France for professional football clubs.
Each year, the TFC Foundation organises more than 50 events. About 60 000 children aged between 6 and 18 years old participate in one or more CSR programmes of the club.
Today, the name of our CSR programme is “Generation Pitchouns”, divided into three parts: Social, Education, Charity (11+1). TFC Foundation aims at using the power of football to inspire youth in three areas:
- “Football Social”: 3 programmes focusing on the football practice through the support for local amateur clubs, training in disadvantaged areas and the organisation of tournaments & events in the TFC Stadium.
- “Football Educatif”: 3 programmes focusing on football as a tool for reflection to sensitise and educate future generations.
- “Football Solidaire 11+1”: : this programme aims at helping and supporting our community throughout charity. As a symbol, “11” refers to the number of players in a football team. Then, “+1” represents the solidarity and all the people/organisations all around the club which can have an important role: players, fans, charity associations, sponsors, public institutions, etc. Each month, the club stands for a good cause, and all the “+1’s” are involved.
The TFC Foundation uses the social, educative and charitable power of football to inspire its community. The goal is to make sure that each Toulouse youngster can experience one or more of the Foundation’s actions, as to fully count as a member of the “génération Pitchoun”.
