Forever Manchester is the only charity that raises money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester. We believe that connected communities make stronger, happier communities, so we love any activity that brings people together.

In every neighbourhood across Greater Manchester there are thousands of people involved in community activity. In fact, at any given time there are an unbelievable 20,000 local grassroots projects of varying sizes and interests taking place. These activities are the lifeblood of our neighbourhoods, they are happening right now on our doorsteps, and they are being run by people who give up their precious time to make our communities happier and safer places to be.

Forever Manchester cares about those people who care enough to act. We champion local people doing extraordinary things together. And when advice, encouragement and funding is needed, Forever Manchester is there to provide a hand up to support them.

Since Forever Manchester was established in 1989 we have delivered over £59 million into local communities. All of the money raised for Forever Manchester is used to fund and support over 1,300 community projects each year. This means we will have supported community activity within one mile of your home or business if it’s in Greater Manchester.

Forever Manchester is a charity for people round ‘ere, supporting community activity year in and year out. But to do all this great stuff we need to raise money. So whether you are a company or individual, your generosity can create something special right across Greater Manchester, keeping it great.

So take a moment.
