Grants

The Children’s Foundation Grants provide financial assistance for children in need so that they can participate in sports, cultural and recreational activities. Funds are available for the activity of the child’s choice as long as the activity will benefit and enrich their own personal development.

Why Do We Exist?

Because we believe that all children and youth should be given the same opportunities in life. By providing the children with these experiences we are not only encouraging a healthy lifestyle but also the opportunity for friendship and social development.

How We Make a Difference

  • Provide financial assistance to the activity of the child’s choice

  • Encourage children to try new activities and get active

  • Allow children to continue in the activities they love even when times are tough for their family

  • Teach skills like teamwork and leadership and build self-esteem

  • Partner with local organizations and companies who want to help the children within the community.

"I love hockey and the competitive side of it. I also like the exercise on the ice which makes me feel good and makes me become a better skater." (age 11)

"My favourite part of summer camp was having a campfire, eating fried oatmeal, and having a sleepover." (age 12)

"I sincerely thank you for the financial support given to my son for the football program. He has excelled in this sport on the field as well as taken some of the lessons and applied them to everyday life. He has made several friends from his team of which I would expect will be lifetime relationships." (from a mom)
