Recognize the female athletes in your community
The Champions Fund was created by Canada’s dairy farmers to empower the female athletic community, to provide a resource that can help change the game for Canada’s young girls and women athletes.
The 2016 Champions Fund is now closed. Meet the 20 inspiring female athletes, teams, and organizations who are changing the Canadian sports landscape, and have been awarded a $5,000 grant.
Don’t worry! The application process will open again in 2017, so check back and apply for your opportunity to be considered for a $5,000 grant!
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. In 2016, Canada’s dairy farmers distributed 20 grants of $5,000 grants.
Anyone from Canada’s female athletic community aged 13 and older can apply, or apply on behalf of their team, tournament, camp or program.
To apply for the Champions Fund, simply create a profile, and answer a few questions about your passion for Canadian female athletics. From there, you can share your profile on social media.
