Volleyball Canada Call for Donations

Support Team Canada and be a part of the Olympic and Paralympic journey!

This winter, Volleyball Canada is holding its highly anticipated annual fundraising auction from February 14-21, 2019. Our online auction reaches supporters across the country at www.volleyballauction.ca

To reach our auction goal of $40,000, we rely on donors to provide us with a wide-range of auction items. Donations have ranged from all-inclusive vacations and autographed sports memorabilia, to event passes and gift certificates and much more!  

We hope we can count on your donation to this year’s auction that will raise funds to help our athletes reach their goal of qualification and success leading up to the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo, Japan.

Here are some highlights from the 2018 National Team seasons:

• In its first year of the inaugural Volleyball Nations League, the men’s team finished the tournament with a respectable 8-7 record, finishing 7th overall
• The indoor women’s team won silver at the NORCECA Challenge Cup on home soil in Edmonton, AB
• Sarah Pavan & Melissa Humana-Paredes won gold and Sam Schachter & Sam Pedlow won silver at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in Coolangatta, Australia
• At the conclusion of the season, the women’s sitting volleyball team is currently ranked a best-ever sixth in the world

The funds raised from this auction, and other fundraising initiatives such as Vision 2020, will help our athletes reach for the podium with better training and competition opportunities.  

Volleyball Canada is a national, non-profit, registered charity that oversees the organization of our Canadian National Indoor, Beach and Sitting Volleyball Teams. To support our National Team programs and help ensure our athletes have a chance at future medal performances, we need to raise funds annually through means other than government support.

Attached to this letter is our Donor Reply Form. If you are able to offer your support, please complete the form in full and return it to us at your earliest convenience. The form may also be completed and submitted online at https://volleyballcanada.formstack.com/forms/auction2019. A charitable tax receipt can be issued if the reply form is completed and your donation is eligible as per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines.

Whichever level of support you choose, please know that it is greatly appreciated, and we will ensure your company/organization receives appropriate recognition for your generosity. 

On behalf of the athletes and coaches who are in pursuit of their Olympic and Paralympic dreams -  thank you!

Sincerely,
