In 2023, The Rally Together Fund provided $4M in one-time recovery funding to amateur sport to support organizations that had decreased membership or volunteerism due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This fund helped B.C.’s amateur sport system continue to provide opportunities for sport development and recovery, as well as provide significant community and economic benefits.

The Rally Together Fund had two grant categories: Sport Participation and Sport Volunteer grants. The Fund’s purpose was to:

  • Rebuild sport participation by recruiting participants of all ages and to offer more inclusive and accessible program options to more British Columbians.
  • Help British Columbian sport organizations recruit, retain, and train volunteers such as coaches, officials, administrators, board members, and other positions.

Below is a summary of the results of this generous funding provided by the Province of BC.


The Province of BC invested $4M across 228 projects.



Over 62,000 individuals supported as a result of the Rally Together Sport Participation & Volunteer Grants.



Local Sport Organizations were directly funded through this grant, and many more supported through grants awarded to Designated Provincial/Disability/Multi-Sport Organization.


125 unique communities in British Columbia were supported.



British Columbia welcomed 29,315 new participants to volunteer and sport positions.



90% of funded organizations believe that their organization is better equipped to support participation and volunteerism long-term.

In addition, for every $92 of funding provided by the Province of BC, a volunteer was recruited or upskilled. For every $47 of funding provided, a new sport participant was recruited or a current participant was supported to continue their sport.
