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 Penticton provides grants of up to $400 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 Penticton uses the following eligibility requirements to determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund.
- Before you start: Ensure you know what sport organization your child will join, the specific length of season, and the exact registration fee associated with the season (remember that we cover registration fees, NOT funding related to equipment, volunteering, fundraising or travel).
- - Note that your most recent Notice of Assessment MUST be attached to your application form. We cannot process your electronic application without proof of income.
If you are unsure of your eligibility to receive a grant, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
