Manchester Munich Memorial Foundation (MMMF)

The Manchester Munich Memorial Foundation (MMMF) is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Munich 1958 Air Disaster and ensuring that this legacy is handed on to future generations.

We will endeavour, through raising charitable donations and through supporting charitable works in Manchester, Munich and Belgrade, to keep the memory of the Busby Babes preserved and enhanced.

The beneficiaries of our Foundation will be children’s/sports related charities in both Munich Germany and Belgrade Serbia and also in Manchester UK.

Following our successes of 2017/2018, culminating in the 60th Memorial service at Trudering, Munich, the MMMF has been officially set up as a registered CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation).

We work with Manchester United FC, Bayern Munich FC, The Mayor of Munich’s Office, The Munich University Hospital and our selected charities in Munich, Belgrade and Manchester.

The MMMF’s Charity Number is 1192487
