The Canadian Olympic Association and Field Hockey Canada are accepting applications for the Men’s Olympic Trust Fund until the end of February.
Under the terms of the agreement executed in 1990 between the Canadian Olympic Association and Field Hockey Canada, monies from the Men’s Field Hockey Olympic Endowment Fund shall be used to enhance high performance of men’s and boy’s field hockey in and for Canada, including, but not restricted to, training, encouragement and development of field hockey skills, providing coaching for boy’s and men’s teams playing in or for Canada, providing training facilities and equipment and providing funding for boys and men participating in field hockey.
The model for the fund is to distribute annually some or all of the interest income generated from investments of the principal endowment. The total distribution to grant applicants varies from year to year. Ten thousand dollars was distributed for the year ending March 31, 2016.
The Board encourages applications from an array of organizations so as to be able to achieve a broad distribution of funds within the sport. Individual grant applications are generally but not unequivocally capped at $5,000.
Application Submission and Deadline
Applications must be received on or before February 28, 2016. The Trustees will review applications and award grants by March 31, 2016. All applicants will be informed of the results. Funds are distributed in April.
