Jim Stynes Foundation

Supporting Disadvantaged Youth

Champion footballer, selfless philanthropist, respected writer, inspiring youth worker, qualified teacher, passionate chairman, loving husband, caring father and most of all, a role-model to thousands. The Jim Stynes name means many things to many different people. Whichever Jim you think of, whichever words you use to describe him, it’s certain to be of a positive nature.

The Jim Stynes Foundation perpetuates the work of the late Jim Stynes by supporting disadvantaged youth. Harnessing Jim’s passion for sport, his allies and his charitable inceptions, the foundation curates a list of charities and distributes 100% of all donations to these beneficiaries.
