Give The Gift Of Sport

KidSport is Calling all Canadians to Give the Gift of Sport this Holiday Season!


It’s that time of year again, time to Give the Gift of Sport in our eleventh annual fundraising campaign!

Give the Gift of Sport is our annual holiday campaign that raises awareness and funds to help under-resourced Calgary & Area youth participate in organized sport. This year’s campaign launched November 15, 2022 and will run through the holidays until January 6, 2023.

KidSport Calgary is calling all Calgarians to Give the Gift of Sport and help us raise $50,000 to get more local kids off the sidelines and into the game in 2023. This extra support will set our 2023 year off to a solid start So ALL Kids Can Play!

Every donation counts and will help make a difference in the 1-in-3 children’s lives who cannot participate in organized sport due to financial barriers. Everyone is invited to help change this statistic by visiting our donation page to contribute. You will be giving a gift that lasts well beyond the holidays.

Corporate and tribute donations are also an option, where you can make a donation in honour, memory, or celebration of someone.

Help us spread the word on social media by joining the holiday conversation on Twitter @kidsportcalgary and posting on Instagram @kidsportcalgary with #GiftofSport and like us on


Help us make it so ALL kids get to experience the positive benefits of sport!
