The Bell Community Sport Fund helps communities increase inclusion and accessibility in hockey and soccer programs for children and youth, aged four to seventeen.

Successful applicants must describe in detail how the Bell Community Sport Fund grant would be used to positively impact the sports of hockey and/or soccer by making it a more inclusive, accessible and welcoming environment for their participants.

There are countless ways that a Bell Community Sport Fund grant could positively impact your community and provide a lasting legacy for children and youth. Examples of possible initiatives include decreasing or eliminating enrollment costs, equipment sharing/swapping programs, increasing the number of coaches and officials, improving the quality of playing surfaces or creating new fields or rinks. For examples of how the grant could be used, see the Bell Community Sport Fund Sample Grant Application Scenarios.

The Bell Community Sport Fund is administered by the True Sport Foundation, Canada's leading charitable organization committed to the belief that values-driven sport makes a powerful, positive contribution to the development of individuals, communities and Canadian society. True Sport is a Canadian movement that celebrates the sport Canadians want: a sport built on values that bring out the best in people. True Sport is about athletes, parents, coaches and officials across the country giving voice to the great good that sport can do not only for individuals and their teams but also for the neighbourhoods, the cities, and the towns they live in.
