Community Support Summary

Support in your Community

Sport can play a major role in the physical and emotional well-being of children. The Flight Deck Program encourages youth involvement in amateur athletics, and recognizes the volunteer efforts of their coaches and assistant coaches. Sport teams can apply to attend a Winnipeg Blue Bombers home game.

The Community Festival Program builds stronger relationships with rural communities in Manitoba with a focus on volunteerism at the festivals, fairs and rodeos celebrated province-wide. These events have the opportunity to unify and celebrate their volunteer efforts and ensure the volunteers don’t go unnoticed.

Financial support is a maximum contribution of $2,000 using the formula of $20 per volunteer. For example, a festival with 75 volunteers would receive $1,500 (75 x $20). Branded shirts are also provided for volunteers to wear during the event—please see the Festival Program Additional Questions form. As part of our support, we seek the exclusive title sponsorship of “Volunteer Sponsor.” 

Application deadline:

  • January 1 for all festivals happening between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020.

Support by Donation

Organizations may request up to 48 decks of playing cards per fiscal year (April 1 to March 31). This limit is in place so that we can accommodate as many groups as possible in this popular program. Cards must be used for recreational purposes only, not be used by anyone under the age of 18, and not be re-sold. Please pick up cards within 3 weeks of receiving notification.
