St Mirren FC Charitable Foundation is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation

 and the official charity of St Mirren Football Club.

Since our re-launch in Nov 2018 we have focused on delivering programmes within Renfrewshire which fulfil our key objectives, answer the need of our communities and are aligned with the spirit of St Mirren FC’s own ‘Our Town Our Team’ ethos, putting our people first.

We understand the social challenges many Renfrewshire residents face and we are committed to implement long term, sustainable positive change to help provide them with a brighter and more hopeful future.

We understand the responsibility we have in our community, the important role that football plays in the lives of the people in it and the power our beloved stadium has as an engagement tool for the programmes we deliver.

Developing positive and purposeful partnerships with local authorities, third sector organisations, commercial partners and fans is important to us and essential in helping us to choose the direction of our strategy going forward.

Our work supports people of all ages, capabilities and backgrounds as we are entirely inclusive and fully aware, post pandemic, of the need now more than ever to help empower our people and rebuild more resilient and resourceful communities.

Our Scottish Charity number is: SC044247
