The Home Hardware Return to Sport Matching Grant: Helping Kids Get Back in the Game

Jul 12 2021

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

It's a well known fact that COVID-19 has sidelined young athletes across Canada. For that reason, helping kids get back in the game has never been so important. That’s why Home Hardware has partnered with FlipGive to donate $25,000 in matching grants to teams ready to make a comeback. When you raise $100 on FlipGive, Home Hardware will provide a $100 Return to Sport Matching Grant.

Interested? Here's how you can participate.

The Game Plan

The Home Hardware Return to Sport Matching Grant is available for new and existing FlipGive teams. Once you are signed up, you'll be asked to opt-in by sharing a story about your team. After submitting your application, it's time for the fundraising to begin! At the end of every month, there will be Grant Rounds where we will reward 50 teams* that raise $100 with a $100 Return to Sport Matching Grant from Home Hardware. 

*FlipGive to select the first teams that qualify for a maximum of 50 teams per month (a total of 250 teams at the end of the Matching Grant period). If your team qualified in a previous month but did not make the maximum cap, your team will be entered into the next Grant Round. See Matching Grant Terms & Conditions here.

Important Timelines & Grant Rounds

The Home Hardware Return to Sport Matching Grant starts on July 12, 2021 and ends on November 30, 2021.
