CSCO Sustainability Fund will support the ongoing enhancement of programs and services that CSCO delivers to the Community Sport Council network to ensure “Healthier, more physically literate communities across Ontario”. Financial support received through donations will support increased lobbying with local Governments, enhanced communications through virtual network meetings, institution of quarterly e newsletters, provision of enhanced e learning opportunities and development of relevant resources to build capacity in community sport organizations. The fundraising goal is $10,000 per year.
2. CSCO Community Sport Emerging Athletes Mentorship Fund will support Ontario community level developing athletes in their pursuit of excellence in sport by supporting their training and competitive opportunities to enable them to reach a higher level in their sport participation.
