Canadian Tire – Jumpstart

Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.  
The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.
Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.

Sports are a proven way to boost kids’ self-esteem, leadership and academic abilities.

That’s why Jumpstart has worked passionately since 2005 to remove financial barriers and help over 1.4 million kids get into sports and physical activity. We remain committed to removing the financial barriers to play.

With your support, we can ensure no kid gets left on sidelines.
