MTPF - The Tour of Teesside
Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation
The Foundation is a registered charity, set up by Teessiders for Teessiders. It provides a framework for individuals and businesses to join together and make Teesside a better place in which to live, work and do business.
We have raised over £1.7 million in the past four years – Our purpose is simply to raise and allocate funds to assist community groups within Teesside.
We have three specific goals:
1. To make a real difference to the lives of local people.
2. To show the 400,000+ people who live in our area that there is a group of businesses and individuals who want to make a difference.
3. To let the outside world know that we live in a special place where community spirit and a sense of fairness are important.
School Hardship Fund
The Philanthropic Foundation is especially proud to have improved the lives of underprivileged local children. Over the last 12 months we’ve donated £12,000 to local primary schools so that they can support the most needy pupils and families in their care. We gave one Stockton school enough money to buy bunk beds for one of their poorest families, allowing kids of very different ages to sleep on their own for the first time. Another local school was able to take pupils on a day-trip to Saltburn, allowing some of the pupils to paddle in the sea for the first time, despite living only a few miles from the coast. Your support can help us continue to support Teesside’s poorest children.
Nominate a Teesside Hero
The Philanthropic Foundation is determined to shout about our local community champions, the unsung heroes who do lots of work in the community without fan-fare or financial reward. Our monthly Teesside Heroes Awards are all about recognising those community superstars, whilst helping the Foundation distribute much-needed funds to truly worthwhile causes across the area. Each Teesside Hero receives £1,000 for a local cause of their choice – plus a gleaming trophy and meal for two at a local restaurant.
Wish Sport Campaign
For a fourth successive year, the Foundation is funding the Teesside’s Gazette’s annual Wish Sport campaign, giving away thousands of pounds to not-for-profit sports groups across the area. Thanks to the fantastic generosity of our patrons and all those who’ve helped us raise funds, we’ve again made a £30,000 pot available to share between dozens of groups.
Middlesbrough & Teesside Sporting Academy
We are proud to announce we will shortly be launching our latest exciting project, Middlesbrough & Teesside Sports Academy. This scheme derives from our football initiative for those who had suffered homelessness or were in recovery from addiction. Having made such a positive impact on people’s lives through the football project, the Sports Academy is our next steps to do more of the same – only bigger and better. Working closely with existing services, the Sports Academy will utilise a wide range of sports and activities to help vulnerable Teessiders to turn their lives around and build a better future.
Our Events Include:
The Big Teesside Sleepout
We have now held six Sleepout events, with are growing each time! Our participants give up their beds and home comforts for the night, and sleep rough outside Middlesbrough College. Over £79,000 has been raised to date with all money raised being used to help local homeless initiatives and stock food banks.
Our sister charity ‘CEO Sleepout’ was set up to help fight homelessness and poverty.
