The Sports Legacy Fund is an investment in the sporting community of Kamloops and surrounding region by the Kamloops Blazers Sports Society and Blazers Sports Foundation. It has been established as a result of the 2007 sale of the WHL Kamloops Blazers Hockey franchise and by the commitment of the members of these organizations to sustainable sport initiatives through opportunity, growth and excellence. The Society recognizes both financial and organizational support as valuable use of the income from the Legacy Fund. Wherever possible, financial support is accompanied by efforts to build the capacity and effectiveness of amateur sport organizations. As of October 1st, the Sports Legacy Fund is taking funding applications for its 7th year. The deadline is November 30, 2015 and applicants are again reminded that all completed applications and supporting documents must be submitted to the Society no later than the November 30th deadline. The majority of organizations use the on line application program but completed submissions are also accepted by mail.
