FC United's Development Fund (DF) has played a critical role in getting us to our dream of having our own ground.

In total, since its inception, we have raised over £500k through the Development Fund - a fantastic achievement that is a testament to the passion, dedication and generosity of FC United supporters everywhere and in particular to those stalwarts who have been part of the DF committee, guiding and steering our fundraising to these heights.

The real success of our volunteers and The DF committee has been to achieve a range of fundraising initiatives that are now part of the fabric of the club, self-sustaining, and managed by our volunteer army, who have become accomplished in their own areas and with their own projects.

What can you do to help?

Make a one-off donation

Firstly, you can make a donation. We have now made it really easy to make one-off donations to the DF so anyone can do so in seconds. Below you will find GoCardless donation links for various denominations. All donations made are one-off payments, and will go direct to the FC United of Manchester Development Fund to be used to help finance our new ground.

Set up a Direct Debit (or increase an existing one)

Please set up a Direct Debit, however small, or consider increasing your Direct Debit by £1 or even £5 per month? Do you know someone you could ask take out a Direct Debit for £1 per week or £5 per month? Small amounts add up so even £5 per month from 1000 members would realise £60,000 in a year. To set up a Direct Debit please click on a link below. To increase an existing one, call the FC office on 0161 769 2005 or email us at the FC office.

Weekly Prize Draw

FC United has launched a weekly prize draw in partnership with the Lancashire County Cricket Club Foundation. The partnership is a win-win for FC United and the LCCC Foundation – the money it raises is split between the community football club’s Development Fund and a number of causes supported by the foundation.

Buy Pound for the Ground Tickets at home matches

Pound for the Ground tickets are available at every home league game. The winning ticket is drawn at half time and the lucky winner receives £200. Over the past three seasons we have raised more than £36,000 from the Pound for the Ground draw. Not a bad return for people buying tickets for £1 each. You can't miss our sellers outside the ground so make their day - and ours - by buying a ticket or two. Click here for more info.

Donate to our collecting barrels at home games

Foreign Currency Campaign

Save up and keep your coins and notes from around the world. No matter what currency it is, no matter how small, it can make a difference. If you bring it along to Broadhurst Park and drop it off at the office or drop off in the barrels on a match day we use a broker who will exchange it. Even obsolete pre-Euro notes and coins are wanted and our small team of volunteers will count, sort and get them changed into cash for the DF. Let's all make a big effort to find our hoard of unused and lonely spare change coins and notes brought back from holidays which are now just a distant memory and turn them into useful cash for the club’s Development Fund. Click here for the latest totals.

Holiday Draw

Win £1,000 towards your holiday with FC United. The Holiday Draw raises a £1,000 every month towards the DF, but with your help can raise more. For just £10 per month you get the chance to win £1,000 voucher to spend with Bowman Travel each and every month. Click here for more info.

Thanks for your support however you can give it. Whatever way you can help, every extra pound we raise makes a big difference to the club.
