Do More focuses on three areas: Sport & Play, Health and Wellbeing and Tech4Good. We aim to use our global scale and collective energy, to help those who need it most.
Driving positive social change to establish active, thriving communities through the power of sport.
One in five people rely on community sports clubs across the UK. Through our Flutter UKI division, we’ve donated c.£5 million (including our ClubsInCrisis campaign) to help clubs improve facilities, coaching, equipment, outreach and more.
Our partnership with Cash4Clubs will offer grants of up to £2,000 to eligible clubs in the UK and Ireland in 2023.

Flutter International, in partnership with Global Giving, launched a new fund called Esporte Futuro. The fund is targeted at community sports clubs aiming to help disadvantaged young people and aims to reach 3000 people across projects. The grants to these clubs will enable events to help keep children off the streets including football classes, and health and hygiene lessons.
Health and wellbeing
Laying the foundations for long-term sustainable success across all aspects of life.
In 2023, Flutter became the headline partner of the Tour 21, Cure Leukaemia’s flagship fundraising event. The event sees a team of amateur cyclists take on all 21 stages of the Tour de France.
This initiative helped raise over £1 million for Cure Leukaemia’s Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) – a programme designed to accelerate the delivery of potentially life-saving blood cancer clinical trials, giving patients access to treatments not currently available through standard care.
FanDuel has donated $2 million to support UNCF’s work with each of Maryland’s four Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). The funding helps support students with essential educational-related needs. FanDuel has also created an employment track for students to join its annual summer internship program in New York.
The Vincent de Paul Society in Australia run an annual “Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout” event where Australian leaders sleep out to raise funds to support the 122,000 Australians experiencing homelessness. In 2023, Barni Evans, SportsBet CEO, and Peter Harman, Chief Legal & Risk Officer together raised over $100,000 AUD.
Technology for good
Showcasing and supporting technology that can transform lives by creating connections, developing new skills and solving social issues.
We launched our first Tech4Good award in partnership with Alpha Hub, Flutter’s Startup Partnership programme. The award aims to support startups that are using technology to address social issues, particularly those that are addressing needs of disadvantaged groups.
Being part of a community means being there when the unexpected happens. We partnered with humanitarian charities, including Care International and Global Giving, to support communities affected by disasters.
In 2022, we donated almost £500,000 to Care International to support the relief efforts in Ukraine.
In 2023, we donated £200,000 to Global Giving’s Earthquake Relief Fund to help deliver urgent aid in Turkey, Syria and Morocco. We also matched donations to the tune of £74,780 raised by our staff.
Our colleagues are passionate about giving back and we provide them with the opportunities to volunteer and make a positive impact in their local communities.
We offer every colleague at least two days per year to give back for causes. Recent examples include:
- Sportsbet volunteers harvested croups as part of Food For Change in Australia
- BLIP volunteers helped with conservation efforts for VERDE in Portugal
- Sisal volunteers raised money at the Relay Marathon for two local causes in Italy
- Betfair Romania colleagues as part of the Walking Month campaign helped raise funds for local causes
Our colleague charity committees are run by volunteers from across the business operating at a local level in multiple offices around the world. Each committee receives an annual budget to support local causes and build relationships with the communities where we are based. We have organised events, arranged volunteering sessions, and made donations to many causes including Spinal Injuries Ireland, Bumbleance, and Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.
