Endowment

An Endowed gift is an investment in the future of Team Canada allowing the Canadian Olympic Foundation to continue to support our talented athletes, coaches and our sport system for years to come. By creating an endowed gift, a donor can help create a sustained source of funding. An endowment is an investment fund set aside for the long-term and provides a predictable source of support of a charity. We invite you to be a part of our future with an investment in the endowment or with the establishment of a named fund. To make an endowment gift to the Foundation or for more information,please contact Selga Apse, Director of Business Operations by phone at 416-254-6836 or by email at sapse@olympic.ca.

In Honour

Placing a gift to the Canadian Olympic Foundation in your will in honour of a loved one is a meaningful way to leave a legacy that will empower the future of Team Canada athletes. Planning a legacy gift demonstrates your love of sport, love for your country and your support of Canadian athletes. A legacy gift allows you the satisfaction and joy of knowing that you are contributing to the ongoing success of Team Canada and will not affect your income during your lifetime. In addition, gifts made to charitable organizations will offer significant tax benefits and a bequest to the Foundation will reduce the amount of taxes owed by your estate. To speak with us directly, you can contact Amanda Grydziuszko, Philanthropic Manager, Impact Giving at 416-805-6290 or email at agrydziuszko@olympic.ca

Corporate Giving

Giving through your company is a great way to support Team Canada. Many companies make it easy to give and often match donations – doubling the impact of your gift. If your company is looking to make a substantial impact in the lives of Canada’s extraordinary athletes who are working towards their Olympic dreams, please contact Olivia Oldfield, Philanthropic & Communications Coordinator at 416-570-4238 or by email at ooldfield@olympic.ca

Corporate Matching

Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies can financially match donations that their employees make to the Canadian Olympic Foundation. When an employee makes a donation, we will request the matching gift from your employer, who then makes their own donation. If you’re interested in more information on how you or your company can support Team Canada through corporate matching, please contact Olivia Oldfield, Philanthropic & Communications Coordinator at 416-570-4238 or by email at ooldfield@olympic.ca

Alumni Giving

As Team Canada alumni we welcome you to continue to make a difference in the lives of current and future Olympians. The Olympians Supporting Olympians Bursary was inspired by Canada’s athletes, whose resilience through the COVID-19 pandemic has been a source of hope and pride for all Canadians, but especially Team Canada alumni. Funded by the donations of Team Canada alumni from across the country and supported by the leadership of two-time Olympic champion Rosie MacLennan, Olympic silver medalist Charmaine Crooks, and Olympic champion and member of the COF’s Board of Directors, Mark Tewksbury, the bursary provides financial support for athletes on their paths to Tokyo and Beijing. If you are Team Canada alumni and would like to continue your legacy by giving to current Team Canada athletes, please contact Elisa Iannarelli, Philanthropic Coordinator at 647-376-8975 or by email at eiannarelli@olympic.ca or donate directly below.
