The Board of Directors of the OSHF has recently created the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame “Hope from Heroes” Foundation. The purpose of the Hope from Heroes Foundation is to assist, in a small way, members of the Ontario community. This may mean donating clothing, skates, shoes or even books to kids who are without some of the basic items we take for granted. We are pledging to donate a percentage of the money we raise annually to the Foundation. As we continue to mature and our annual fundraising grows, we hope to be able to make a bigger contribution to those in need in our province. We would like to enlist you, the Ontario public, as supporters of this initiative.
We will be asking the members of the OSHF board as well as the general public to make suggestions. At this time, our funds are limited, but we feel that if we can help even a small group or individual in a significant way, then we will be fulfilling our mandate which is to support the grass-roots of Ontario sports.
Once a group, individual or team has been identified, we will be sending them the funds as well as a letter from the Board of Directors and the Advocate Group. The Advocate group is composed of ten inducted members of the OSHF. They have kindly offered to assist us and act as a “sounding board” for this initiative.
We plan to grow this program with the ideal of promoting sports, competition, wellness and memories.
Note: We are a not-for-profit organization and, as such, we cannot offer tax receipts.
