Funding

Club Excellence is a self-sustaining program that is supported by certification fees.

The members of the Club Excellence Cooperative and its administrator, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, provide support to the program through value-in-kind contributions of human resources.

During its development phase, the program was generously supported by Canadian Heritage (Sport Canada) and the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

Sport Canada funded the initial development for the workshop support service. This included the workshop design (activities, structure, workbook and piloting), the pilot testing of the workshop and the training of the initial learning facilitators.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation provided support to develop the standards and certification program that the current program is built to support. This support helped develop the standards and pilot test them with community sport clubs.
