OTTAWA CHAMPIONS COUNCIL

PROUD CANADIANS WHO SHARE IN THE BELIEF THAT CANADA BELONGS ON THE PODIUM

BECOMING A CHAMPION

Imagine being the Champion of your community. Someone who embodies what it is to be Canadian and the power of the Olympic Movement. Being a part of the Champions Council allows you to be a leader in your community at the highest level – a gold medal standard.

The Champions Council serves as a local group of enthusiastic individuals who are visibly aligned with the Canadian Olympic Foundation and are dedicated to the Olympic Movement.

As a Champion you will have the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than just philanthropy, you will also receive podium-level benefits and specific honours, allowing you to truly live your own Olympic dream. You will be listed as an exclusive Champions Council member on our website with a linked personal biography, allowing you to build an exclusive network of high-performance champions, just like you.

These Councils will be established in more than 25 cities across Canada and internationally, with Tokyo, Japan being the inaugural city ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The members will be the philanthropic champions of their city – they are the flag bearers of this movement, the torch runners of their cities.

To be a part of the Champions Council is to be an integral part of being Olympic and owning the podium.

LIVING LIKE A CHAMPION

By 2020, each Council will commit to raising $250,000 within their community to support Team Canada. This can be done through individual giving or fundraising events. As a Champion, each extraordinary individual is responsible for contributing a minimum of $10,000 by Tokyo 2020.

With the support of the Canadian Olympic Foundation, the Council will determine the best way for their community to achieve this milestone, while honouring the values of the Olympic Movement. This investment truly allows Team Canada to thrive and continue to dominate the podium as a world leader in elite sport. By helping our athletes through the generosity of your community, you share in their glory.

DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT

A top priority of the Canadian Olympic Foundation is funding our future Olympians. This means a strong focus on talented, high-performance athletes that are 5 to 8 years from the podium. This will leverage a $4 million per year matching investment from the Federal Government. The Next Generation Initiative identifies and supports athletes and helps them define and perfect their skills by providing support, specialized training, equipment and access to innovative sport science.

Every donation to the Canadian Olympic Foundation under the Next Generation Initiative gives you an opportunity to double the impact you have on our athletes with the government matching your donation 1:1.

YOU ARE HELPING PAVE THEIR PATH TO THE PODIUM. YOU ARE FUNDING TEAM CANADA’S NEXT OLYMPIC CHAMPION.
