Because all children have the right to participate in Sports!

Sponsor a Child Today!
Sports for all kids!

AASF has helped over 1 Children participate in sport!

What We Do:

Our sport grants have been leveling the playing field financially for low income Brantford, County of Brant and Six Nations families for over 20 years. We assist parents and caregivers who may have limited financial freedom to provide opportunities for their children to experience an active lifestyle in an organized sport. Participating in sport has many recorded and documented values for children and youth but also to families and to the community.

  • Educating children and their families of the life potential benefits of organized sports to enhance the the health of the children and their caregivers.
  • Sports build self-esteem and positive self-image, allowing youth to confidently avoid negative activities and contribute positively to the community.
  • Sports build social skills, stimulates participation in community life, and produces leaders who serve their communities in many ways.

Our deepest condolences to the Gretzky family on the loss of such an amazing man who was truly larger than life! He will be remembered throughout our community and especially missed at the hockey arenas where he never tired of taking pictures with thousands of children and parents. We were proud and honored to have him attend our Arnold Anderson Sport Fund Golf Tournaments every year and will miss hearing him tell his stories about his love of life! Sticks are out for you, Walter! Rest easy till we meet again!   ...more

    "Sports has shaped me into the person I am today. Without them I would be lost. To deprive children of discovering themselves through sport due to money is appalling." ...more

    "As an elite athlete and mother of three, sport has incredible meaning to our family. I am blessed that it was a significant part of my life as a child and am very pleased that the Arnold Anderson Sport Fund can assist children in my community to have the right to access sport."

    "When I was a youth growing up in the 1960’s, my parents never had the money or resources to introduce me to or enroll me in any form of organized sports and there wasn’t any organization that provided the support like the Arnold Anderson Sports Fund does. It wasn’t until reaching high school that I was fortunate to have mentors who encouraged, inspired, believed in and supported me to become involved in sports. Sports quickly became one of the most significant influential factors in my life that taught me discipline, respect, team work and health benefits. Sports also gave me self confidence, helped groom my social skills and inspired me to become involved in our community. It is fitting that this fund’s namesake is Arnold Anderson as he played a huge role in helping shape my personal and professional life. The AASF provides a catalyst for our youth who do not have the means to participate in sports and benefit from all of these attributes and life skills." ...more
