#GivingTuesday is HERE

And We Need Your Support! 

Did you know that for every 1 boy that drops out of sports, 3 girls drop out? Fast and Female is committed to changing this. This #GivingTuesday, consider donating to Fast and Female Supporting Women in Sport Foundation by showing your commitment to supporting the next generation of leaders through sport, today.  

Donate Now

Today marks Giving Tuesday, which is a global generosity initiative with the purpose of encouraging people to give back to non-profit organizations however they can. This can include donating, volunteering, and sharing on social media. This #GivingTuesday, we need your support to help ensure Fast and Female Supporting Women in Sport Foundation can continue to keep self-identified girls healthy and active in sports and physical activities in 2023 and beyond! In September, Fast and Female set a goal to fundraise $30,000 by the end of the year. We are $3,000 away from our goal! To help raise those funds, we are launching our "The Future is Now Campaign", which features some of our Youth Advisory Council Members and the experiences they have had within sport, and opportunities they have had with Fast and Female. Check out our website to read the letters the YAC members wrote to the community. 

Here's how you can support us in reaching our goal and keep more self-identified girls in sport:

  • Donate to Fast and Female!
  • Share our message today using #GivingTuesday and tag @FastandFemale
  • Fundraise for us! You can create a fundraising team HERE to help collect dollars on behalf of Fast and Female! Check out this document for more ideas on how you can fundraise for us. To get inspired, check out our blog post featuring Laura J. Evans, who created a Fast and Female fundraiser earlier this year! Thanks, Laura, for supporting Fast and Female!  

Fast and Female Supporting Women in Sport Foundation aims to be as transparent with our community as possible moving forward. To do that, we are sharing our key priorities on where your donation will go:

  • Expand access to free and low-cost sport opportunities, with a priority on creating a sense of belonging through empowering and impactful programs, teaching life skill transference through sport. This includes running free events and/or offering fully subsidized tickets to participants for all of our events and programs.
  • Create brave, representational and accessible programs for self-identified girls from across Canada, by acknowledging the various barriers that youth from different communities face. Access is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach and we are dedicated to creating spaces for all to prosper. This means continuing to develop and deliver events and programs through an intersectional lens, in collaboration with like-minded partners and organizations that represent and/or are from equity-deserving communities.
  • Connect more self-identified girls with REAL (relatable, empowered, active leaders) Role Models from within their communities. If you can’t see it, you can’t be it, and we aim to continue to evolve a network of diverse role models to mentor and shape the leaders of tomorrow. This includes revamping our Role Model program, implementing core training for all our Role Models, and launching a recruitment campaign to increase representation of Role Models from equity-deserving communities.
