This fundraiser is being run in partnership with the National Sport Trust Fund and Sport4Ontario. Members who donate to the fund will receive a tax receipt from the National Sport Trust Fund for their contribution. Donations will be accepted until September 30, 2021.


Project Description:

Capital projects undertaken during the 2021 COVID-19 shutdown.

The proceeds from this fundraising will be used for the following cause(s):

High Park Club is not reopening for the 2020/2021 curling season. During the shutdown, the Club will be tackling a variety of capital projects to create a safer environment for members and guests, to improve the quality of the ice, and to improve the overall member experience.

The following projects were chosen because of their environmental effects, high return-on-investment potential, and overall impact to the member experience.

  1. Clubhouse HVAC retrofit, including indoor air quality improvements and a rink-to-dining room air exchange for improved rink ventilation
  2. Clubhouse and rink LED lighting retrofit
  3. Ice surface and rink improvements
  4. Replacement of main floor patio entrance
  5. Replacement of upper and lower rink viewing glass
  6. Repair or replacement of rink roof
  7. Condenser replacement

Some of the funds may be used to offset operating or fixed costs related to the capital projects plan.

It is expected that approximately 40-50% of the projects will be funded by members' generous donations, with the remainder being funded by the Club's cash reserves and borrowing, if necessary. All projects are tentative pending sufficient funds are raised.

How this project will assist in promoting or developing amateur sport on a national level:

High Park Club is the centre of amateur curling in the city of Toronto. On top of having an enthusiastic and dedicated membership, the Club also boasts a vibrant youth curling program, including serving as host of the Stu Sells U-21 Tankard; an active lawn tennis section; and a strong bonspiel program with which we welcome hundreds of local amateur athletes and top world-ranked teams to our Club each year.

These projects will help to improve the experience of both members and guests, while also reducing the Club's impact on the environment and saving the Club money in the long run. These projects will help further the Club's mission of promoting amateur curling and tennis in the GTA.

Projected amount of money to be raised:


Fundraising Start Date: 11/25/2020

Fundraising End Date: 12/31/2021

Additional Information:

The National Sport Trust Fund (NSTF) is a philanthropic gift-giving program established through the Canadian Council of Provincial and Territorial Sport Federations (CCP&TSF) for the development of amateur sport on a national level. The CCP&TSF is a Registered Canadian Amateur Athletic Association (RCAAA) with the Canada Revenue Agency.

SPORT4ONTARIO (S4O) a member of the CCP&TSF has been authorized to act as the Ontario Branch of the NSTF and is the provincial fund manager for all donations made to amateur sport in Ontario which operates as the National Sport Trust Fund-Ontario (NSTF-Ontario)

Through the operation of this program NSTF-Ontario is able to issue official tax receipts for all qualifying donations. This initiative permits Provincial Sport Organizations/Multi Sport Organizations (PSO/MSO’s) and their members to establish revenue generation programs for which a charitable tax receipt can be provided for qualifying donations. Donations will be made to the NSTF-Ontario and then made available to the individual organizations on a quarterly basis.

Member curling clubs of either Curl ON (Ontario Curling Association) or the Northern Ontario Curling Association (NOCA) are member clubs of the Ontario Curling Council, the recognized Provincial Sport Organization for curling in Ontario. The Ontario Curling Council is a member of SPORT4ONTARIO, therefore member curling clubs may benefit from this program.
