In 2017, to celebrate Orienteering Canada's 50th anniversary, we created this fundraising campaign to start an endowment fund to help orienteering in Canada grow over the next 50 years. We also encourage you to donate to this endowment fund in memory of Adrian Zissos and George Pugh.
All money donated here will be the seed money to start the Orienteering Canada Endowment Fund.

What is an endowment fund? An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. The assets in an endowment fund are carefully invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose (in this case: Orienteering Canada), and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s value. In this way, an endowment fund can grow and provide support for Orienteering Canada in perpetuity.

We have created a Q&A sheet for those of you looking for more info about the endowment fund: http://tinyurl.com/OCendowmentfundinfo
