REQUESTS FOR SPONSORSHIPS OR DONATIONS
Giving generously back to our communities and the customer’s who support our stores is a fundamental element of Quinn Sports Management’s business philosophy.
As a franchised member of FGL Sports a large portion of our budget is committed to support Jumpstart, a program that subsidizes underprivileged children to be able to participate in organized sports. For more information on jumpstart please visit http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca.
Each year QSM contributes an additional $250,000 to the following charities, community events and associations: The Special Olympics, The Canada Games, The Montreal Children’s Hospital foundation, Société pour les enfants handicapés du Québec, St. Mary’s Hospital, Centraide, The West Island Palliative Care, the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie, École de Ski Rod Roy, the West Island Women’s Shelter, the Blackout Race, the Lachenaie Hockey Association, The Laval hockey association, the Boisbriand / Blainville Armada, over 20 Community hockey tournaments and 10 community golf tournaments.
Due to the significant number of requests we receive and our established commitments and partnerships, we are only able to be involved in a limited number of additional events. The criterion below has been established to provide a clear understanding of our requirements and priorities in order for a donation or sponsorship request to be considered.

The event or sponsorship increases our exposure and promotes our stores.
The event or sponsorship will be held within the community where at least one of our franchises is located.
The request is presented by loyal customers to our stores or by associations with whom we have an established partnership.
