Bid for a shirt and support Futuremakers by Standard Chartered

Liverpool FC players will promote ‘Futuremakers by Standard Chartered’ on their shirts when they take on Tottenham Hotspur FC on Sunday 27 October. Bid on one of these special-edition LFC shirts to support young people around the world. All money raised will be matched by Standard Chartered and will fund Futuremakers programmes in education, employability and entrepreneurship. 

Who we are

The Standard Chartered Foundation is a charitable foundation that tackles inequality by promoting greater economic inclusion for disadvantaged young people from low-income households, particularly girls and people with visual impairments.

Established in 2019 by Standard Chartered Bank, it is a registered charity in England and Wales (charity number 1184946).  

Why tackle inequality?

Social and economic inequality limits individual and collective potential, stifling growth and creating social disharmony. Inequality significantly affects disadvantaged young people who often can’t access the skills and opportunities needed to close the income gap.

Globally, more than 200 million young people are either unemployed, or they have jobs, but continue to live in poverty due to low income. They lack the opportunities to improve their lives and their communities.

Our response

The Foundation funds programmes in the areas of education, employability, entrepreneurship and eye health. 

It is the lead partner in delivering Futuremakers by Standard Chartered.
