February 27, 2009(Ottawa, Ontario – February 27, 2009) The True Sport Foundation is now accepting applications for the True Sport Community Fund. Grants in the amount of $5,000 or $25,000 are available in support of sport programs that create access, and promote inclusion for children and youth from Aboriginal, low- income, and new Canadian families.
“Through the True Sport Community Fund, we are helping communities to provide tools and programs that will give Canadian children and youth an opportunity to participate in True Sport – sport based on the values of fairness, inclusion, excellence, and fun,” says Victor Lachance, executive director of the True Sport Foundation.
The fund is the result of a partnership between The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and the True Sport Foundation. Funds are awarded to programs that address common barriers to participation, create sport opportunities that have a broader appeal to Aboriginal or new Canadian children and youth, provide volunteer coach and official training, and improve or create new playing surfaces.
