PacificSport Fraser Valley recognizes the need for financial aid to support the training and competition needs of athletes throughout the province of British Columbia. The intent of these grants is to provide assistance to athletes for out-of-pocket expenses relating to competition travel or performance services.
The Travel Grant and the Performance Services Grant are both made possible by the annual Operation Red Nose fundraising program, the Sweepstakes for Sport Corporate Curling Challenge hosted by PacificSport Fraser Valley, and through funds donated to PacificSport Fraser Valley via the Powering Sport Fund.
