What is the Exeter City Foundation?
The Exeter City Foundation is a not-for-profit lottery scheme, whereby any surplus money is ploughed back into ‘good causes’ at the club.
Anyone can join the foundation. By paying just £10 per month (£120 per year), you become eligible for the monthly £1,000 prize and weekly £100 prizes.
Foundation members who purchase a season ticket qualify for an additional benefit, either £23 cashback - equivalent to £1 for each home league match - or £30 worth of Exeter City Club Shop vouchers.
On joining, you will receive a membership card with your unique Foundation number. Draws take place each month for both the monthly and weekly prizes. The £1,000 prize winners have the opportunity of being presented with their prize on the pitch at the next home game (or one that is convenient to the winner). In all cases, the foundation wish to generate the maximum publicity for the scheme. Winners will also be posted on the club website and, with the winners' permission, an article will be prepared for the matchday programme and may be used as an item in the club's e-newsletter.
Winners who are unable to attend in person will receive their cheques through the post – as will happen during the close season.
It’s a great opportunity – why not tell your friends and family! Foundation members can earn up to £20 ‘cash back’ for introducing a new member who stays for over 12 months.
Money can’t buy prizes
‘Money can't buy’ prizes for foundation members were introduced a few years ago, and proved a great success. They will continue for the current season. These are:
These prizes offer a unique insight for loyal fans to see how the club works at close quarters, and offer great extra value for your foundation membership. (The prize of watch the match from the press bo will not be available this season due to the ground re-development, but will resume in 2018/19).
