Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates, and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.
Jumpstart supports children between the ages of 4 and 18.
Jumpstart assists with the cost associated with registration, equipment and/or transportation
Funding up to $300 per child is available.
A maximum of one program per child is allowed per season.
Funding is available for different members of the same family during the same season.
Funding approval is dependent on the financial situation of each child.

The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Champions for Kids Foundation (C4K) is a charity formed in January 2008 to discreetly help level the playing field for UCDSB children and their families.
Although our main focus is to assist families in allowing their children to participate in sports, arts and other fun activities outside of school hours, we also meet unique needs like covering minor medical expenses (i.e. eyeglasses), providing gas cards to parents with a child in the hospital, or purchasing a winter coat for a child who needs warmth.
There isn't always enough money to provide the extras that make childhood more fun and enjoyable. That's where we come in.

The Good Samaritan Trust Fund has been established, in an effort to support those in our Catholic schools whose learning would be enhanced by the benefits it provides, and in keeping with the mission of Jesus Christ, whose primary concern was for the poor and marginalized.
Applications are submitted via the School Principal to the Board of Directors. Applications are assessed based on need and granted upon board approval.
