The Nepean Eagles Football Club Receives Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund Grant

In February, Canadian Tire Corporation announced an additional $12 million commitment to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund to help sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada. Jumpstart conducted a State of Sport study via Ipsos which revealed the pandemic has not only impacted current access to sport and play but has real long-term effects as well. The Eagles and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.

We are pleased to announce that the Eagles recently received confirmation that we will be provided with grant support through the last round of Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. In 2021, Jumpstart has now disbursed funding to more than 1,200 organizations across Canada through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know the positive impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.

With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to augment staffing to support programming as well as a review of policies and procedures aimed at enabling kids to be properly equipped in order to play safely at our fields.

Please let me know if you have any questions and/or if you are interested in joining our team.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Stephen Dean

President,

Nepean Eagles Football Club
