Canadian Tire Jumpstart                       

Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program launched by the family of Canadian Tire companies in 2005.
 
The program helps financially disadvantaged kids (ages 4-18) participate in organized sport and recreation by covering registration, equipment and/or transportation costs. For some kids, the program gives them the chance to experience a sport for the very first time. For others, it is the boost they need to continue with an activity they love.
 
In 2010, Canadian Tire Leduc along with community partners established a Leduc Chapter which provides funding for all eligible residents within the Leduc County boundaries. Major community partners include: City of Leduc, Leduc County, Leduc and District Food Bank, Boys and Girls Club – Leduc, Black Gold Regional Schools, and St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Schools.

The Leduc Chapter is also continuously looking for donations and support to the program. All donations/supports will be kept and utilized within the Leduc County region. Please visit Leduc Jumpstart for additional information.
 

The process of obtaining funding for this program is simple:

  • The registrant’s parent brings the Jumpstart application to the minor sporting organization. 

  • An endorsement letter supporting the application must be included; this letter can be written by a teacher, religious organization, or a community representative (social agency). 

  • Families must demonstrate that they are in financial need, however certain circumstances will also be considered. 

  • Please express your situation with the individual/organization that will be providing you an endorsement letter into the program.

  • The sporting organization then waives the amount up to a maximum of $300 and submits the application. 

  • From there, the application is typically approved or denied within a week or two. 

  • The organization would then be notified to ensure that your organization does not lose funding, etc. in case an application is denied or an applicant has maxed out on their funding eligibility.
  • Once approved, your organization will receive a cheque from Jumpstart within 4-6 weeks.
