motionball is a not-for-profit organization that builds awareness and raises funds for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation (SOCF). Targeting the 'next generation' of supporters - Canada's young professionals - motionball holds a series of fundraising events in communities across Canada.
All of motionball’s proceeds go directly to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation (SOCF-charity # 869562041 RR0001). At motionball’s request, 70% of the funds raised within each Province are then sent to the affiliated Special Olympics Provincial Chapter. For example, in the motionball Marathon of Sport Toronto, 70% of all funds raised are directed to Special Olympics Ontario. This is to ensure we are helping fund the grass root level organizations that are key to the SOC structure. It also helps the local Special Olympics Chapter in paying for team uniforms, tournament costs, travel expenses, equipment and the “Healthy Athlete” programs.
25% of funds raised from each motionball event stay with the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Special Olympics Canada Foundation’s objective is to provide funding for athlete and volunteer recruitment and training for each Provincial and Territorial chapter, as well as to ensure the long term financial and organizational sustainability of the Special Olympics movement.
motionball aims to introduce the next generation of volunteers and donors to the Special Olympics movement through integrated social and sporting events, creating relevant, meaningful experiences that help bring the fun back into giving.
