Sport & Philanthropy Toolkit (2016)

SportPhilanthropy_CoverApproximately 85% of Canadians believe that sport participation builds stronger communities, and 28% of adults and 50% of children participate in sport every year.

While the average volunteer-run organization receives 49% of their funding from the government, sport organizations on average receive only 12%. This represents a large, yet untapped, opportunity. Thankfully, things have changed and the True Sport Foundation and Community Foundations of Canada are here to help.

This resource is a playbook for sport organizations and community foundations that are interested in working together to unlock funding for community benefit. It outlines the steps for sport organizations to start a partnership, presents two types of partnership models and shares ‘Pro Tips’ along the way.
