This year Forever Manchester celebrates 30 years of funding and supporting community activity across Greater Manchester.

Our simple mission over the last 30 years has been to raise money to fund and support grassroot community activity across Greater Manchester with a belief that everyone should have the opportunity to be happy. During this time, we have successfully attracted and delivered £39 million of investment into our communities across Greater Manchester, helping 1.1 million local people achieve extraordinary things together.

So to celebrate our 30th year we’re going to try and be the loudest voice on behalf of the 20,000 community projects in our neighbourhoods and we’re backing the people of Greater Manchester to do what we do best and do things differently to the rest of the UK by getting behind our very own Give it up for Forever Manchester fundraising campaign to raise another £1 million to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.

To request a Give It Up fundraising pack, please email marketing@forevermanchester.com and provide us with your name and address details, and we’ll send a pack out to you in the post.
