Athletics for Kids aims to support the more than 1/3 of Canadian children who cannot participate in sports or recreational activities due to financial barriers. Their long-term commitment from K-12 can have a life-changing impact on a young person. A4K’s 2015 program goal is to administer 1250 sports grants for BC kids to realize their sporting dreams, enabling them to experience all the physical, mental and social benefits that participation has to offer.
SVP Vancouver’s grant supports a part-time communications and marketing staff member to assist A4K’s new branding, website, messaging, collateral, and fundraising campaigns.
SVP’s 2015 Grant: $35,000 with generous Co-Funding from the BPS Group.
