Rally Together (comprised of the Sport Participation and Sport Volunteer Grants) was developed to provide one-time recovery funding for amateur sport organizations that have seen a decrease in membership and volunteerism due to COVID-19. This fund will help B.C.’s amateur sport system continue to provide opportunities for sport development and recovery as well as the significant community and economic benefits. The Rally Together Fund has a total funding envelope of $4M and is supported by the Province of B.C. and administered through viaSport British Columbia. 

The $2M Rally Together Sport Participation Grant helps organizations build their participant numbers – to recruit players, athletes and participants of all ages, and to offer more inclusive and accessible program options so that more British Columbians can play. It’s time to rally together through programs and activities that encourage all British Columbians to participate!

Who Can Apply?

  • Recognized, Accredited or Affiliated Provincial Sport Organizations (PSOs)
  • Recognized or Accredited Disability Sport Organizations (DSOs)
  • Recognized Multi-Sport Organizations

All eligible organizations will need to show a 20% loss in their membership due to the impacts of COVID-19. 

Provincial and disability sport organizations that don’t meet the membership loss threshold will be able to apply for special consideration if they can express how their organization meets the intent of the grant (i.e. there was a decline in sport participation in their sport but it is not reflected in the annually reported membership data and can be explained).
