Champions of 

Community. 

Champions of Play.

Founded in 2005, Jumpstart Charities helps kids overcome financial and accessibility barriers to sport and recreation in an effort to provide inclusive play for kids of all abilities.

What We Do

Jumpstart is working towards creating a more inclusive Canada, where all kids can access sport and play.

What Matters Most

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.

Our Mission

To enrich the lives of kids in need through sport and physical activity.

Our Vision

Canada, where all kids have a chance to
fulfill their dreams.

100% of every donation made to a Jumpstart Chapter gets reinvested in that community—directly impacting local kids.
