The Canadian Field Hockey Olympic Endowment Fund is now accepting applications for 2019 support. The deadline is December 31, 2018.
Purpose of the Canadian Men’s Field Hockey Olympic Endowment Fund
As outlined in the agreement executed in 1990 between the Canadian Olympic Association and the Canadian Field Hockey Association, the purpose of the Fund is to provide financial support in order to enhance the high performance of men’s and boy’s field hockey activities in Canada, including, but without restricting the generality of the foregoing, to encourage the development of field hockey skills by providing coaching, equipment and training for boys and mens teams playing in or for Canada, and by providing scholarships and other funding for boys and men participating in field hockey in Canada.
A Board of Trustees oversees the fund. There are three trustees. The Board encourages applications from field hockey clubs, as well as regional, provincial, and national organizations supporting men’s and boy’s field hockey.
The model for the fund is to distribute annually some or all of the interest income generated from investments of the principal endowment. The total distribution to grant applicants varies from year to year; for reference, three grants totalling $12,000 were awarded in 2018.
While not stipulated, the Trustees encourage applications from organizations across the field hockey community, so as to be able to achieve a broad distribution of funds within the sport. Individual grant applications are generally, but not unequivocally capped at $5,000.

Applications must be received on or before December 31, 2018. The Trustees will review applications and award grants on or before March 31, 2019. All applicants will be informed of the results.
