The Arsenal Foundation focuses on work that motivates and inspires young people - often through education and sport - to help them reach their potential and become the best they can be.
Since it was launched, The Arsenal Foundation has committed more than £1million to support a range of projects both in the UK and overseas that are directly supporting in excess of 100,000 young people.
These initiatives include those of the Club's official charity partners, Save the Children and Willow Foundation, as well as community projects closer to home.
