Program Sponsors

We are responsible for ongoing maintenance and operational costs, and hope to be sustainable through grants, sponsorships and donations. We also train and pay our youth coaches to lead our free sports and recreational clinics and camps. These organizations help us to continue offering clinics and jobs to youth.

You also can help us to give these opportunities to the more than 10,000 students enrolled at neighbouring schools.

OntarioOntario Sport & Recreation Communities Fund

Go Green is grateful to the OSRCF for supporting a new partnership with Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office which facilitated a significant expansion of its camps as a result of the grand opening in June, 2015.  This enabled Go Green to move its cricket program outdoors and engage in the training of youth in additional sports while at the same time Go Green expanded its youth coaching team from ten cricket coaches to 22 cricket and multisport youth coaches for 2015. A generous OSRCF award supports TNO Go Green Summer and March break camps until the conclusion of its March Break Camp in 2017.

A major residential property owner and manager in the City of Toronto, Greenwin engages in several community revitalization projects by facilitating social programming and enhancements at its sites including the San Romanoway Revitalization Association and The Oaks.
