This year, more fans than ever before got involved with the Cityzens Giving campaign, which saw 2.25 million engagements.
Fans voted for £400,000 of funding to be split between six projects, taking the cumulative total donated by Cityzens Giving to £3.7 million, supporting 21 projects over six years.
The six projects chosen for 2019-20 were in Manchester, Melbourne, New York, Mumbai, Cape Coast and Philadelphia, all using the power of football to tackle wide-ranging social issues, with the programmes run and often created by our Young Leaders.
We also took Manchester City fans to volunteer for the programme in Bangalore in India, thanks to our partner Xylem. Six City fans, together with Paul Dickov, helped to build two water towers in schools where the Cityzens Giving Water Goals project is delivered. Each tower provides clean access to water for 2,000 people per day in two different communities.
