Dedicated Funds

Captains Fund / National U20 Sponsorship

In the late 1990’s then Foundation executive director Aaron Abrams brought a proposal to the former Rugby Canada Captain, Mark Wyatt’s attention. With enthusiasm the proposal went from proof to print.

Designed to assist age-grade players in meeting the modern day demands of rugby, the Foundation adopted the Captain’s Fund as a vehicle to support young players striving to obtain the requisite experience to play at the highest level.

At its core, has been the Fund’s extensive support of Rugby Canada’s U20 program. The Fund has been an active participant and supporter of a variety of players, and teams to ensure both are not prevented from participation based on funding alone.

Due to its broad appeal and intent, the Captain’s Fund is, and continues to be, widely supported by the greater rugby community. Additionally, due in part to its name, the Fund has most of the former Captains participating.

Monty Heald National Women’s Fund

The Monty Heald National Women’s Fund was created to fill the need of increased financial support for the National Women’s Teams and in particular to remove as much as possible the requirement for National Team athletes to pay funds to Rugby Canada to offset the costs of representing Canada on the international field.
