TriGator for Kids Foundation

Foundation Mission

Established in 2009, the TriGator for Kids Foundation has provided in excess of $600,000 towards supporting charities whose focus allows all kids the chance to participate in organized sports and recreation in our region, so they can develop important life skills, self-esteem and confidence.

To date, our biggest benefactor has been Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities® which has proven to be an exceptional partner whose goal is to help kids in financial need participate in organized sport and recreation with 100% of our race proceeds going to Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities®

Starting in 2017, we have expanded the mandate of our foundation by allowing individuals and organizations to apply for a grant in support of an initiative focused on enhancing access to sport and recreation for youth in our community.   Our mission at the TriGator for Kids Foundation is a community where all children feel a sense of well-being and inclusion through the participation in an active and healthy lifestyle.  The foundation provides financial assistance to individuals and/or organizations within the Region of Waterloo area that demonstrate a funding need that aligns with our mission.
