Established in 1994 to deliver football programmes as Lincoln City Football in the Community (FiTC), we evolved to become a charity in 2009. We use the unique brand, reputation and reach of Lincoln City Football Club alongside our many influential partnerships to inspire lives and communities.
The move to become a standalone charity has enabled the work of the Foundation to expand and grow, meeting the ever changing needs of an evolving city and county. The original aim of FiTC was to engage individuals to come and watch the mighty Imps. This aspiration remains; however it is now underpinned by a rich portfolio of impactful delivery programmes and societal initiatives.
At present the Foundation has a workforce of over 40 staff and numerous volunteers, whose knowledge, skills, and experience has seen the Foundation remain a constant of the Lincoln City Football Club family. Throughout the past 26 years we have been resilient, overcoming many challenges including the Club’s relegation from the English Football League (EFL), a pandemic, changes in government policy and increases in competition. Our agility and creativity will ensure that we continue to develop, evolve, and grow, whilst always ensuring that local need, whatever the challenge, is at the heart of what we do.
