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.

Female Canadian athletes celebrate success together.
