Athletics Canada Foundation

Working with ACF

We Want to Hear From You!

 

To further our mission and meet our objectives, the Athletics Canada Foundation will be working alongside Athletics Canada to support athleticism across the country.

Do you have an idea, event or program that fits within our mandate? If so, then we want to hear from you! Athletics Canada welcomes the opportunity to fund partnerships or work alongside not-for-profit member associations without charitable status (intermediaries) that helps to fulfill its three objectives:

Getting Canadians Active

Regardless of age or ability – our goal is to get you moving! As partners, we create opportunities for Canadians of all ages and abilities to participate recreationally or competitively in all disciplines of athletics. We are committed to providing a positive experience through sport, which develops physical literacy and a love of athletics.

Keeping Canadians Active

Once we have you moving, we want to ensure that you don’t stop, which is why providing opportunities for participants to remain active and competitive through all stages of life is a major goal of the foundation. Whether it’s limiting the amount of youth that drop out of sport during the transition after secondary school, supporting scholarships for high school, college and university students and promoting active athletics for the young at heart, ACF supports activity for all ages.

High Performance Excellence

At all levels, our athletes proudly compete and represent Canada, but they don’t get there alone – it takes an entire community. From site visits to ensure their safety, to proper nutrition and training along the way, all of the secondary support required to keep our National Team Athletes healthy, safe, and competitive adds up quickly! One of the goals of the Foundation is to support the development of an integrated performance pathway which will enable sustainable success at the Olympic / Paralympic Games and World Championships.

*Please note, Athletics Canada is a Registered Canadian Amateur Athletic Association (RCAAA) meaning it has as its exclusive purpose and function, the promotion of amateur athletics in Canada. As such, Athletics Canada must operate under the rules and regulations related to these associations as set forth by the Canada Revenue Agency, Charities Directorate and their obligations under the Income Tax Act. According to the Income Tax Act, a charity or RCAAA usually carries on its activities using its staff or through an intermediary but it must still direct and control the use of its resources, and cannot merely be a conduit to funnel money to a member organization that is not a qualified donee.
