Women in Sport Fund

To nurture and inspire women and girl’s participation in sport, by providing funding to support athletes, coaches, and officials based in greater Ōtautahi Christchurch. These scholarships will grow their exposure and success, and by sharing their stories to other athletes it will create the ripple effect of inspiration to yet more women and girls who can see what’s possible. 

Four grants will be issued each year. Two grants will be allocated to athletes, one to a coach, and one to an official/administrator. 

To kick things off, we’re looking for 100 generous philanthropists to donate $1,000 forming the core of our club of supporters.

As a donor of our special “sports club”, you can come along to four events every year. You’ll hear from coaches, athletes and of course the recipients of the sports scholarships. What’s more you can bring along a young female as your guest to inspire them.

What part will you play?

Join our team of 100, led by Gemma McCaw.
