In September, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities announced an $8 million sport relief fund to help sport and recreation organizations continue to deliver programming in 2020 and beyond.
As you may be aware, many community organizations have shut their doors due to the financial burden created by COVID-19, including lost revenue and increased program costs. The Niagara Falls Soccer Club has experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
We recently received confirmation that we are amongst 668 sport and recreation organizations nationally to be provided with grant support through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know how positive an impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.
With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to overcome any expenses outstanding and ongoing that we had to cover due to the stoppage and cancellation of the season. This will give us a chance to start off 2021 on the right foot and keep us moving onward with our Club direction and path that we have embarked upon, benefitting all our members in the short term!
We are excited for 2021 and look forward to putting this all behind us and getting our members back out on the fields!
Thank you @CT Jumpstart for all your help and selecting us to qualify for your grant!
