Maccabi Canada’s Grant for JUNIOR & Open Athletes

The cost to send a Junior & Open athlete to the Maccabiah Games is $14,350. This cost includes flights, accommodations, competition, and any other expenses related to the 6-day Azrieli Israel Experience and the two weeks of the Games.

Thanks to the generosity of Maccabi Canada’s donors led by the Azrieli Foundation and the Scheinberg family, Maccabi Canada is able to completely fund the Azrieli Israel Experience, and subsidize the cost of games participation for the Junior delegation by $4,000 per athlete.

Maccabi Canada continues with its ongoing fundraising efforts in order to provide additional financial assistance for those in need.  We are now accepting applications for financial aid for the 2022 Maccabiah Games.

Maccabi Canada does not guarantee funding for applicants. We urge you to make any effort to fundraise on your own in addition to submitting the financial assistance application.

Deadline for submitting your application is April 15th, 2022.
