This year, Curling Québec is launching a fundraising initiative that aims to create five new development programs that will contribute directly to the improvement of curling in Quebec. The theme of the 2016-2017 campaign is “A Winning Investment”.
Why a fundraising campaign?
In addition to our currently available Curling 101 and Igloo development programs, Curling Québec wishes to create new programs that will start youth day camps, recruit new female curlers, improve online presence and live streaming, assist clubs in their marketing efforts, and boost initiation to the sport. These initiatives will directly contribute to the promotion of our sport at the provincial level.
How to help?
You can help by contributing financially to the implementation of these programs. Thanks to your donations, programs like Igloo and Curling 101 will be offered to many more new players, and a greater number of training sessions and curling activities will be held.
The financial support of curling enthusiasts is crucial to the success of our mission.

Should you prefer making your donation by cheque, simply fill out this donation form and send it to: 4545 Pierre-De Coubertin, Montréal, Quebec, H1V 0B2, to the attention of Curling Québec.
This year, Curling Québec is part of the Placements Sports program, a donation matching program established by the Gouvernement du Québec. Thanks to this program, every donation of $25 or more that the federation receives will be matched by Placements Sports at a rate of 230%. It is an innovative program and is very important for the federation.
Therefore a donation of $25 will in fact raise $82.50 for Curling Québec. A $100 donation will raise $330, and a donation of $500 will be worth a total of $1650 after it is matched by Placements Sports. In addition, a receipt will be issued for tax-purposes. Now that’s a profitable donation!
Curling Québec thanks you for your contribution!
