Q: What is Celtic FC Foundation?
A: Celtic FC Foundation upholds and promotes the charitable principles and heritage of Celtic Football Club. In doing so, Celtic FC Foundation delivers change and purpose to the Celtic Family and beyond. The social principles, key priorities, aims and objectives of Celtic Charity Fund (established in 1995) and the Celtic Foundation (established in 2006) were so clearly aligned, it was agreed that the natural progression was for both units to become a new, stronger Scottish Charity with a wider role and greater reach. This new entity, Celtic FC Foundation is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (number SC024648) with its registered office at Celtic Park, Glasgow, G40 3RE.
