Community is the core of who we are and what we do. We invest in the next generation by creating access, building capacity and empowering youth. We create spaces, give to sustainable programs, and deliver best-in-class sport programs.
HOW WE GIVE
HOW WE DO IT
Fewer than 10 percent of Ontario youth get the recommended hour of daily physical activity. Through our grant programs, we support organizations helping youth get off the sidelines.
Parents spend an average of nearly $600 each year for their children to participate in sport, making it unaffordable for more than 40 percent of children living in low-income households. Our free community programs remove barriers to organized sport.
1 in 2
Only half of children aged 5 to 14 regularly took part in sports during the previous 12 months. We refurbish athletic facilities to create more opportunities for youth to get moving in their community.
More than 60 percent of youth face significant barriers in life. MLSE LaunchPad provides free Sport For Development programming teaching life-skills through sport and empowering youth facing barriers to recognize and reach their potential.
Since launching in December 2009, MLSE Foundation has invested more than $35 million into Ontario communities. Using the power of sport as a unifying force, we're committed to helping youth reach their potential and creating more equal playing fields for all.
