What is Tackle4MCR?

Tackle4MCR is a combined effort of Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, and the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, to address rough sleeping and homelessness on the streets of our city-region

What will Tackle4MCR do?

Tackle4MCR will catalyse, promote, organise and manage three fundraising initiatives following a considered approach spanning the full length of the football season, for the benefit of the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund :

1.       A fundraising gala dinner on 4th February 2019, in collaboration with the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel

2.       A participative city-wide campaign; “Football Friday” in Spring 2019 in collaboration with Manchester Evening News

3.       A Gala football match at the Etihad Stadium following the close of the 2018/19 season, courtesy of and in close collaboration with Manchester City Football Club

The Mayor of Greater Manchester Charity (registration #1180418) will use all funds raised to finance the Mayor's ‘A Bed Every Night’ action plan.

What drove Vincent and Andy to put their weight behind this campaign?

Vincent, born in Belgium, made in Manchester, wants to make use of the momentum generated by his Testimonial season to help tackle this growing problem, as a humble sign of appreciation for the love and the acceptance he has received from Manchester and its citizens.

Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham has pledged to end the need for rough sleeping in the city-region by 2020. The Mayor’s Homelessness Fund was set up on his first day in office and plays a key role in Greater Manchester’s efforts to tackle homelessness.

Vincent shared his vision with Andy, and together, they came up with an ambitious plan to turn a celebration into an instrument for social change: A plan to lay the foundations for a positive change that contributes something to the region we all live and work in.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
