EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN TRAINING Do you have an emergency action plan in case a participant gets injured during practice or a competition? It’s an important part of ongoing risk management and the Coaching Association of Canada has training available for all. After this training, you can describe the importance of an emergency action plan (EAP), identify when to activate the EAP, and create a detailed EAP that includes all important information.

Message from the Canadian Archery Foundation
The Canadian Archery Foundation is the philanthropic program of Archery Canada and is not a separate entity. It was established in August 2009 to oversee the development and administration of a separate fund in support of archery, and to reduce the overall reliance on government funding. Archery Canada is a Registered Amateur Athletic Association under Charitable Registration #119390821RR0001. Gifts to the Canadian Archery Foundation/Archery Canada are considered charitable and tax receipts will be issued.
MEET THE BOARD
DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN DOUBLE THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFT?
Does your employer have a Matching Gift program?
Matching gifts are a type of corporate philanthropy program where companies match donations made by their employees to eligible non-profit organizations. The goal of this program is to encourage employees to support charitable causes and amplify the impact of their donations.
Here’s how it typically works: an employee donates to a non-profit organization and submits a matching gift request to their employer. The company then reviews the request to ensure that the non-profit is eligible for the program and that the donation meets the program’s criteria. If approved, the company matches the donation with a contribution of their own, typically dollar-for-dollar up to a certain limit.
Matching gift programs can benefit both non-profits and corporations. Non-profits receive additional funding for their programs and services, while corporations are able to demonstrate their commitment to corporate social responsibility and increase employee engagement and satisfaction. In addition, matching gift programs also help to create a culture of philanthropy within the workplace.
IN YOUR CHARITABLE GIVING THIS YEAR, PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING ARCHERY
