  10. 10. What Makes This Campaign Unique? <ul><li>The Games are back in Canada for the first time in 22 years and we believe the Olympics is about our athletes. This is your chance to be on the starting line with your athlete. Our athletes can bring an entire country together and you can bring your staff and clients together by having your very own athlete that you support now and cheer for in February. </li></ul><ul><li>Your corporation finds out the name of the athlete your donation directly supported. This provides an opportunity for employees to follow that athlete on their journey. They can also share your athlete with their children who can have a positive “Canadian” role model to look up to. </li></ul><ul><li>Your athlete can be part of a conference call, receive a post card from the Games. </li></ul><ul><li>Your contribution can make the difference between eating properly these next 4 months leading up to the Games, having more physio, buying new equipment, alleviating the financial stress and allowing your athlete to focus on success. </li></ul>
  11. 11. FAQ’s <ul><li>Will I be able to choose which athlete my donation goes to? </li></ul><ul><li>CAN Fund will use best efforts to make sure an athlete from your area/Province is a recipient. Hundreds of athletes from across Canada apply. We create a waiting list and it is based on criteria. Therefore as money comes in money goes out. For tax receipt purposes the donor is not allowed to earmark money for a specific individual. </li></ul><ul><li>Is CAN Fund a registered charity? </li></ul><ul><li>Yes, the Canadian Athletes Now Fund is a RCAAA (Registered Canadian Amateur Athletic Association) recognized by the Canadian Customs and Revenue Agency. </li></ul><ul><li>How do athletes apply for this fund? </li></ul><ul><li>Athletes from across Canada apply to the CAN Fund through an application process twice a year. Each application is reviewed by the selection committee and approves by the Canadian Athletes Now Fund Board of Directors. Each athlete has the opportunity to receive $12000 a year. </li></ul><ul><li>Why does the CAN Fund exist? </li></ul><ul><li>The Fund fills a need. Our athletes need our support and Canadians enjoy the opportunity to find out who they have directly supported. Therefore the Fund links our athletes with Canadians across this wonderful country. The Canadian Athletes Now Fund uses creative fundraising campaigns in an attempt to level out the playing field for our Canadian athletes as they compete against many other well-financed athletes in international competition. </li></ul>
  12. 12. There is no better time than now to get involved Our athletes give every thing they’ve got for a complete unknown and for this - We invite you to support. The countdown has begun. Your company CAN make a difference!
