Trust Everton’s mission is to see the future of Everton FC secured for the current and subsequent generations of Evertonians.
The initial rationale for Trust Everton is to explore thoroughly the feasibility of a supporters’ vehicle providing sustainable long-term funding for the real-estate assets of the football club. The two that spring to mind are the training ground and the stadium.
To progress beyond this first phase Trust Everton will need to raise and manage safely a considerable sum of money, and then run and maintain valuable property assets. Its infrastructure and management will need to be of “industrial strength” in order to do this.
|It was announced in October 2011 that the Everton FC training complex at Finch Farm had been placed on the market by the current owner, ROM Capital (Academy) Limited. Trust Everton is examining the feasibility of acquiring Finch Farm.|
Whether that happens, either in the near term or over a longer period, will depend on whether Trust Everton is able to develop suitable legal and financing structures and then raise the funds to make the purchase from subscription-based memberships and other sources of finance.

Finally, please note that until a structure is in place that is capable of delivering its primary asset financing goal Trust Everton will not be offering formal memberships or accepting funds. There is more on the reasoning for this in the FAQ section.
