The Foundation’s Unrestricted (or General) Fund is the fund holding assets that are not dedicated to any other specific endowment, student award, capital fund, or Rugby Canada team. The Foundation’s operating expenses, investment management fees, net investment returns, the Foundation’s matching contributions to the endowment funds over $20,000, and its grants to and sponsorships of specific initiatives are paid from this Fund. Assets in this Fund are generated by donations to the Foundation generally or to the Unrestricted Fund, are the results of the net investment returns over and above the annual payouts earned by each Fund, or are earned from the Administration and General (A&G) Fees from the $1 million+ Funds.
Examples of the current initiatives sponsored or supported by the Foundation’s Unrestricted Fund are:
- Women’s Canadian Rugby Club Championship (CRCC)
- Men’s Canadian Rugby Club Championship (CRCC)
- Canadian University Men’s Rugby Championship (CUMRC)
- Thunder Indigenous Rugby Fund
- BC Grassroots Rugby Foundation
- Fletcher’s Patrons Fund
the latter three having their own dedicated endowment fund.
