Donate to Ultimate Spirit and BC Ultimate

Donate to support Ultimate Spirit and disc sports for indigenous communities

BC Ultimate has partnered with Sport BC and the BC Amateur Sport Fund to raise funds to benefit Ultimate Spirit and their work to introduce disc sports and Spirit of the Game to indigenous communities in BC.

The BC Amateur Sport Fund is the BC chapter of the Canadian Council of Provincial & Territorial Sport Federations, a registered Canadian Amateur Athletics Association with charitable status. This partnership allows you to receive a tax receipt for your donation to this ultimate-focused project. Your gift will help BC Ultimate and Ultimate Spirit continue work which has already engaged over 4000 youth on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast in disc related activities. Our long term goal is to expand this program province-wide.
