Supported Charities

Exeter Chiefs Foundation

Established in 2011, the Exeter Foundation was formed by the Executive of Exeter Rugby Club with some local businessmen with a passion for fundraising and rugby. As the Exeter Chiefs progressed as a team over the years, it became more and more popular with local charities and organisations as a source of income and fundraising. Now re-named the Exeter Chiefs Foundation, the charity has raised well in excess of £1m and helped over 80 projects, charities and organisations. There are two main funding sources available from the Exeter Chiefs Foundation, designated and un-designated funds. Designated funds arise from the work that charities perform for the Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park on match-days. These charities go through an annual application process to provide volunteer man hours on match days in return for a share of the charity money collected. Currently there are 20 charities and organisations that are based within the wider Exeter area that assist in co-ordinating and collecting all the monies on the match days for the current season which are then shared across all those who assisted in the collections. These funds are ring fenced specifically for these organisations and are distributed at the start of the following season at the Season Launch Dinner which is usually held in early September.

The Beacon Centre

Ben will be raising funds for a specific piece of equipment, or if he raises enough money, for a few pieces of equipment for the Beacon Centre at Musgrove Hospital in Taunton. The Beacon Centre provides specialist care for patients - Love Musgrove is the official charity of Musgrove Park Hospital, and raises funds for improvements to patient care where routine NHS funding is not available. Musgrove Park Hospital’s Beacon Centre opened for patients in May 2009, it has made Musgrove Park Hospital, run by Taunton & Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, a centre of excellence in the delivery of cancer treatments for the people of Somerset. The Beacon Centre is the first completely new development of its kind in the UK for nearly 15 years. It has been partly made possible by the massive support of the local community, who have raised over a million pounds towards equipment. Donations to the Beacon Centre have enabled the provision of equipment, furnishings and artwork to enhance the patients’ experience, whilst undergoing treatment within the Beacon Centre, over and above that which it would have otherwise been possible to provide. Continued donations will ensure that further up to date equipment can be purchased in the future.
