Can you help good sport make a great difference?

Do you believe that good sport can make a great difference? Are you passionate about sport and community? Do you know someone who would like to contribute to values-based sport? The True Sport Foundation (TSF) Nominations Committee is currently inviting nominations for new directors.

What is the True Sport Foundation?

The TSF is a national charitable organization dedicated to advancing and supporting values-based and principle-driven sport in communities throughout Canada. 

The TSF embraces and promotes the seven True Sport Principles as a means to instill character in our children, strengthen Canadian communities and increase our opportunities for excellence. We do this by:

  • Incubating new ideas and initiatives to promote values-based and principle-driven sport in an effort to fulfill sport’s contribution to social objectives;
  • Creating partnerships and providing a common place for others who wish to promote and recognize sport as one of our country’s important public assets; and
  • Working with partners and collaborators to operate scholarships, bursaries, grants and awards for the receipt and disbursement of financial resources that relate to our charitable purposes and to growing True Sport.
