Last season the Blades selected charities Age UK Sheffield and Special Olympics Sheffield to be the two additional nominated charities of the Football Club and officials are now again seeking two additional charities for the 2017/18 campaign.
The Blades will support the two chosen charities with matchday bucket collections and will work directly with the charities to offer assistance for some additional fundraising activities and profile raising.
United's four other nominated charities - The Sheffield Children's Hospital, Weston Park Cancer Charity, St Luke's Hospice and Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, all receive support on an ongoing basis and the club also continues to support the St Wilfrid's Centre, which is situated very close to our Bramall Lane stadium.
Ideally, to be considered as a nominated charity for this season, you will need to be a registered charity and be based within the South Yorkshire region.
Nominations will need to come from the charities themselves, so any fans wanting a particular charity to be considered will need to contact the charity to discuss this.
The initial nomination process should be via letter or email and should contain the following information: Name of the charity and address, the work you do, how you are funded and supported, how you promote your charity and more importantly, why you want to be involved with Sheffield United, along with how you can work with the club for the benefit of your organisation.
The email address for nominations is firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Charity Requests, Sheffield United FC, Bramall Lane, Sheffield, S2 4SU. Nominations need to be received by Tuesday 18th July.
There will be a shortlisting and decision process by a panel of United management staff and it is likely that interested charities will be asked to come and present to the panel. A final decision will be made by 3rd August and announced in due course.
