ABOUT THE CHARITIES


The 401 Foundation supports small community projects and individuals with small grants up to £3000 that build confidence, self-esteem, tackle mental health and self-development issues in their local communities.

Donations are put back into the regional areas they are received from, ensuring your money is used to support projects local to you, our goal is to hand out £1.5 million in grants per annum, supporting around 750 local projects and individuals.

The money raised from The USA 2020 Challenge will support this goal as well as ensuring the sustainability of The 401 Foundation for the years to come, through the development of a 200 person voluntary ambassador team.

 

The Youth Sport Trust is a children’s charity working to ensure every child enjoys the life-changing benefits that come from play and sport. It has more than 20 years of expertise in pioneering new ways of using sport to improve children’s wellbeing and give them a brighter
future.

The charity works with more than 20,000 schools across the UK and operates on a local, national and global level. It harnesses the power of sport, physical activity, and PE to build life skills, connections between people and support networks which increase life chances through greater attainment, improved wellbeing, and healthier lifestyles.

The money raised will support Youth Sport Trust to continue its ongoing work providing innovative solutions to the problems that our young people are facing in relation to mental health and wellbeing.
