We believe that winning matters!
By winning medals, Canada's Olympic athletes bring our country's values of excellence, fairness, human development, leadership and peace to life. Few sights inspire national pride and unite the country as powerfully as the Canadian flag flying above all others on the Olympic podium.
Established in 2007, the Canadian Olympic Foundation has raised more than $42 million for priority partners that drive high performance athletic achievement for Canada's Olympic podium potentials and for our next generation of Olympic athletes. The Foundation also funds athlete, coaching, and sport awards and scholarships.
With our new mandate to raise awareness and invest funds to identify and support emerging homegrown athletes, our goal is to cultivate that next generation of talent to create and maintain a winning "Podium Pipeline" for future Olympic Games.
Pursuing excellence in sport takes time and money. The number one reason why young Canadian athletes stop competing in sport at the national level is due to financial barriers. That's where the Canadian Olympic Foundation comes in. We are calling on individuals like you to join us in raising unprecedented financial support for our young and talented athletes who are five to twelve years away from Olympic participation and have their sights set on winning gold for Canada.
