How is Jumpstart funded?
As a registered charity, Jumpstart receives donations and sponsorships from a wide variety of sources. Canadian Tire Corporation is our biggest supporter, as it funds all of our general administrative expenses, allowing 100% of customer donations to go directly toward supporting kids in need.
Vendors from Canadian Tire, FGL Sports, Mark’s, and Canadian Tire Financial Services are also key supporters and funders of Jumpstart. The Government of Canada and several provincial governments also provide grants to support youth and initiatives that support healthy and active living.
Anyone can make a donation to Jumpstart. Annually we receive generous donations from Canadian Tire customers, children who have donated their birthday party money, customers who donated in memory of a loved one, and Canadian Tire employees and business partners who have participated in fundraising events.
