What is a Grant?
KidSport provides grants to kids from families facing financial barriers so they can participate in registered sport programs and experience the lifelong benefits of a season of sport. KidSport Nelson provides grants of up to $500 per eligible child, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees.
Do you need equipment in order to play? Let us know, and we can make a referral to a partner agency. KidSport grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.
KidSport Nelson uses the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Notice of Assessments or a Financial Verification Endorser to determine financial eligibility for grants.
If you are unsure of your eligibility to receive a grant, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
