2013 SPORT4TORONTO Fund
The Sport4Toronto Fund is administered by SPORT4ONTARIO and provides grants to organizations to support athlete development in the City of Toronto including, but not limited to, access to facilities and services, equipment, registration, and coach development. The purpose of this grant program is to enhance the experience of athletes through supporting organizations to provide better services and opportunities for athletes.
Sport4Toronto Fund grants are intended to enhance athlete development by assisting in the removal of barriers such as economic, geographic, transportation or physical, in community and club sport programs in the City of Toronto.
The Sport4Toronto Fund is the result of the ongoing commitment of SPORT4ONTARIO to support athletes by distributing lottery proceeds through the City of Toronto Bingo Lottery Program.

“I would like to give many thanks to SPORT4ONTARIO and Team Kamal for giving me/us the opportunity to attend the course and hopefully, one day become an official referee/judge. I would like to be an official for sure! Without them, we wouldn’t have learned anything.”
Sport4Toronto allowed us to welcome new students into our program, thereby providing a new opportunity for 15 new students to help improve their fitness/well-being!”
