As the year comes to an end, we need your help to make sure Fast and Female can continue to empower girls through sport, physical activity and education in 2024 and beyond!


If you’re looking to maximize your 2023 tax return and support a charity that works to create change for girls across Canada, consider donating today.


82% of youth report not having anyone they feel they can talk to about experiences with racism or discrimination in sport. This includes Black and Indigenous women and girls, and increases among Latinx women and girls (89%).

Fast and Female is a national charity on a mission to empower girls through sport, physical activity and education. We create girl-centred, girl-focused opportunities, in person and virtually, in partnership with like-minded organizations and individuals nationwide. We take an evidence-based approach to introduce girls to Role Models, new sport and physical activities, and deliver workshops to teach them transferable life skills like confidence, the power of positive thinking, using your voice, and so much more.

2023 has been a record-breaking year for our Fast and Female team! We’ve been breaking barriers across the country and are proud to share that:

  • We’ve engaged over 3000 participants through our events, programs and partnerships
  • A ~200% increase in our reach and engagement of youth across Canada through our online and in-person events and programs
  • Hosted over 25 events, including 3 multi-week programs for girls
  • Sharing our first formal Strategic Plan, facilitated by Mosaic Engagement and funded by Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities
  • A 21% increase in total revenue from last year to this year, year to date!

And it’s not over yet. As a lean but mighty team, we are committed to creating change and impact in the sport and physical activity sector and we need your help. We want to end the year strong and support our work through 2024, and that’s why we’ve set a goal of raising an additional $25,000 before the end of the year.

Fast and Female Supporting Women in Sport Foundation aims to be as transparent with our community as possible moving forward. To do that, we are sharing our key priorities on where your donation will go:

  • Continue to expand access to free and low-cost sport opportunities, with a priority on creating a sense of belonging through empowering and impactful programs, teaching life skill transference through sport. This includes running free events and/or offering fully subsidized tickets to participants for all of our events and programs.
  • Create brave, representational and accessible programs for self-identified girls from across Canada, by acknowledging the various barriers that youth from different communities face. Access is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach and we are dedicated to creating spaces for all to prosper. This means continuing to develop and deliver events and programs through an intersectional lens, in collaboration with like-minded partners and organizations that represent and/or are from equity-deserving communities.
  • Work with experts in the sector to update existing and pilot new evidence-based curricula focused on improving our participant’s confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, leadership skills, and more.
  • Invest and grow our National Youth Advisory Program, including expanding our program offerings for youth ages 15-18.
  • Continue to focus on our National Role Model Program, so that we can connect more self-identified girls with REAL (relatable, empowered, active leaders) Role Models from within their communities. If you can’t see it, you can’t be it, and we aim to continue to evolve a network of diverse role models to mentor and shape the leaders of tomorrow. 

Fast and Female Supporting Women in Sport Foundation is planning to raise an estimated amount of $25,000 for our end-of-year fundraising campaign. It will cost our organization an estimated $3000 to raise this. The money raised will be going to support our events and programs to empower girls through sport, physical activity and education.
