give the gift of Sport

KidSport is calling ALL Canadians to Give the Gift of Sport this Holiday Season!

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, BRING IT FULL CIRCLE. GIVE THE GIFT OF SPORT!

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

Give the Gift of Sport is our national campaign that raises awareness and funds to help under-resourced Canadian youth participate in organized sport in Canada. This year’s campaign launched November 16, 2020 and will run through the holidays until January 4, 2021.

KidSport is calling all Canadians to Give the Gift of Sport and help us raise $250,000 to get more kids off the sidelines and into the game in 2021. This extra support will set our 2021 year off to a solid start So ALL Kids Can Play! in more than 100 different sports we receive applications for across Canada.

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.

All donations can be designated to KidSport nationally or to any one of our 166 community chapters across Canada—including our provincial chapters. Your generosity will make an impact in the community you choose.

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 @KidSport with #GiftofSport and like us on Facebook.com/KidSportCanada.

THE POWER OF

Sport

With your support, KidSport British Columbia helps local kids experience the lifelong benefits of sport; kids learn leadership, hard work, dedication, and self-confidence, and build the habits and support network necessary to become healthy adults.

Through sport, kids also gain access to mentorship and guidance from experienced sport leaders, further developing their skills, and helping them grow into our future community leaders.

Sport is one of the best gifts a kid can receive. Your donation to KidSport British Columbia helps us make it So ALL Kids Can Play!

KidSport British Columbia gives up to $400 per eligible kid per year, to participate in a season of sport of their choice. Will you give the gift of sport today?
