ABOUT US

BACKGROUND

In 2015, The Ross County Foundation was established as the official partner charity of Ross County Football Club, “To provide support and change for the better in the Community.”

As an important participant in Scotland’s ‘national sport’ Ross County football Club recognises its high profile and influential position nationally and especially within The Highlands and Island of Scotland.

TRCF works in partnership with local charities and business – The Pebble Trust, Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, NHS Highland, Age Scotland, Climate Challenge Fund, Keep Scotland Beautiful Charity and more.

The Ross County Foundation (TRCF) maintains a close and mutually supportive relationship with Ross County Football and operates under the direction of its own Board of Trustees.
By operating as a registered charity and separating its business activities entirely from the football club, The Ross County Foundation is able to access funding and CSR sponsorship opportunities previously unavailable to RCFC. This additional funding resource is targeted to benefit those in need within the highlands and islands.
