Crusaders Annual Fund
New in 2020, the Crusaders Rugby Club has introduced the Crusaders Annual Fund, a charitable fund intended to raise funds for short-term projects and provide additional support to the club. The Crusaders Annual Fund is administered by Ontario Sport Network, a not-for-profit nonpartisan organization dedicated to the promotion of sport and physical activity in Ontario and a partner in the National Sport Trust Fund (NSTF).
Donors to the Crusaders Annual Fund will receive charitable donation tax receipts for their donations, participation in fundraising events and other forms of charitable giving to the Annual Fund.
The Crusaders Annual Fund supports the annual operation and ongoing development and growth of the Crusaders Rugby Club. It assists the club to implement, acquire and retain the best available resources including facilities, coaching and management.
The proceeds from this fundraising will be used for the following causes:
- Facilities and clubhouse upgrades
- Coach development
- Training facilities, including domes in Winter and turf fields in Spring
- Player Development
- Video equipment, operation and analysis
