HOST AN EVENT

Make KidSport your charity of choice for golf tournaments, weddings, birthdays or recognize someone in the community through a tribute donation. KidSport is a great fit for any community event.

KidSport is also a great way to bring your workplace together: Events like Jeans/ Jersey Fridays, holiday parties, client appreciation events, golf tournaments, bottle drives with our  KidSport Recycling Program, office olympics, 50/50’s and office sport pools are all made better by adding a charitable component. Donate a portion or all of the proceeds to KidSport Calgary & Area.

BECOME A SPORT CLUB CHAMPION

If you are part of a club and want to make your sport more accessible to local kids facing financial barriers, KidSport Calgary & Area can help. Encourage families to apply for a KidSport grant at registration time, So ALL Kids Can Play!

Our sport club partners do so much more than deliver the programming that gets kids into the game - many also fundraise for KidSport, and donate leftover funds at the end of the season - tapping into the real power of kids helping kids.

Join us in becoming a sport club champion with KidSport Calgary & Area in our mission of giving the gift of sport to all kids!  Contact Lisa Parham lisap@kidsportcalgary.ca  to discuss partnership opportunities.
