The Valeo Futbol Foundation was launched in 2016 to support Valeo Futbol Club (VFC) and its Community Development Initiatives. VFC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit sports education and training organization focused on developing competitive athletes, outstanding citizens and strong leaders. We emphasize the values of teamwork, discipline, commitment, respect and leadership as we aim to make a difference in the lives of our boys and girls on the soccer field, in the classroom and beyond. Our goal is to foster an environment to develop leaders and well-rounded individuals.
Support for the Foundation allows us to maximize our impact on the communities we serve by helping to sustain our existing programs, create new programs and support our scholarship fund. The Foundation proudly supports Valeo Futbol Club's inner-city sites: Valeo Boston, Valeo East Boston, Valeo Somerville and Valeo South. Currently 100% of our inner-city program members receive some level of financial aid.
The Valeo Foundation's Community Development initiatives are designed to enrich the lives of our players, their families and their communities. These initiatives focus on:
Increasing opportunities in youth sports participation
Encouraging academic excellence
Health and wellness education
Volunteering and leadership
