About KidSport Greater Victoria
Who is KidSport
KidSport™ was established by Sport BC in 1993 and is a community based sport charity. Since its inception in British Columbia, KidSport™ has grown to include national and provincial/territorial chapters operating across Canada.
KidSport™ Greater Victoria was formed in 2000 and began giving out grants for sport registration fees in 2002. KidSport Canada-BC provides a charitable tax number for donation receipts for all of the KidSport chapters in Canada. Money is raised locally and supports locally thanks in no small part to our generous partners, sponsors and donors.
KidSport Victoria is a non-profit organization that is part of a national and provincial network of community based volunteer groups whose goal is to ensure that kids in financial need have access to the positive experience of sport and physical activity. We believe that sport and physical activity provides a life-long opportunity for self-expression, goal setting, dedication, positive thinking and increased self-confidence for kids.
We achieve our mission by:
- Facilitating the acquisition of funds from existing and new community events that have the capacity to generate resources for KidSport Victoria;
- Developing partnerships with individuals, organizations and foundations whose philanthropic objectives match with those of KidSport Victoria
- Communicating the opportunity for physical activity and sport program funding for financially disadvantaged families;
- Demonstrating the value of gender equity in the allocation of resources and in the organizational structure.
