Recognize the female athletes in your community
The Champions Fund was created by Dairy Farmers of Canada to empower the female athletic community, to provide a resource that can help change the game for Canada’s young girls and women athletes.
In 2017, the Champions Fund will award $5,000 grants to 30 deserving female athletes, teams, or organizations, providing the financial support needed to pursue their athletic goals.
The deadline for submissions is noon on September 20th, 2017. This year’s 30 grant recipients will be announced on October 20th, 2017. Good luck!
How the Champions Fund works
The Champions Fund awards grants to deserving female athletes, teams, or organizations, providing the financial support needed to pursue their athletic goals.
Anyone from Canada’s female athletic community aged 13 and older can apply, or apply on behalf of their team, tournament, camp or program.
While the application period is open for a given year, you can apply by creating a profile and answering a few questions about your passion for Canadian female athletics. From there, you can share your profile on social media.
Our Champions Fund selection committee is in charge of reviewing the applications and deciding on the most-deserving grant recipients.
