Major Gifts, Awards and Foundations

Generous donations – of $10,000 or more – have a powerful impact on Team Canada athletes and enable them to achieve their dreams. Creating an award, donating through your Foundation or making a sizable personal donation will help athletes on their journey to the podium. For more information on these initiatives, please contact Holly Gati at 416-708-5792 or by email at

Gifts of Securities

When you make a gift of securities to the Canadian Olympic Foundation, you are making an immediate impact on Team Canada, while not having to pay taxes on capital gains. You will also receive a tax receipt for the closing price recorded on the day the securities are received into our account. Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares and employee stock options. You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning. 


An event can be an experience of a lifetime that helps to fundraise for Team Canada athletes. From the smallest fundraiser to the large tournaments or dinners, raising money while connecting with the Olympic Movement will make a large impact on athletes across the country. Learn more by contacting us at 1-888-370-7073 or by email at


Your gift to the Canadian Olympic Foundation Endowment is an investment in our talented athletes, coaches and our sport system for years to come. As the capital is never spent, the income earned provides ongoing funding to Canada’s many National Sport Organizations and Sport Partners. 

 Donors have two options when making an Endowed Gift.

1.    Donation to the Canadian Olympic Foundation Endowment Fund. This supports the highest priority needs in the sport system each year,

2.    Create a Named Fund whereby the Donor has the opportunity to direct the funds to a sport or area of their specific interest.  

Legacy & Estates

A legacy gift allows you the satisfaction and joy of knowing that you are contributing to the ongoing success of Team Canada and will not affect your income during your lifetime. In addition, gifts made to charitable organizations will offer significant tax benefits and a bequest to the Foundation will reduce the amount of taxes owed by your estate.

Corporate Giving

Giving through your company is a great way to support Team Canada. Many companies make it easy to give and often match donations – doubling the impact of your gift. If your company is looking to make a substantial impact in the lives of Canada’s extraordinary athletes who are working towards their Olympic dreams, please contact us at 1-888-370-7073 or by email at

Alumni Giving

As Team Canada alumni we welcome you to continue to make a difference in the lives of current and future Olympians. The Olympians Supporting Olympians Bursary was inspired by Canada’s athletes, whose resilience and determination has been a source of hope and pride for all Canadians, but especially Team Canada alumni. Funded by the donations of Team Canada alumni from across the country, the bursary provides financial support for athletes on their paths to the Olympic Games. If you are a Team Canada Olympian and you would like to give back to Team Canada athletes, please contact Elisa Iannarelli, Specialist, Donor Programs at 647-376-8975 or by email at or donate directly below.
