HSBC Bank Community Rugby Fund

The HSBC Bank Community Rugby Fund is a program that offers a wide breadth of grants aimed to benefit the sustainability and growth of rugby across Canada. The Fund, presented in partnership by Rugby Canada and HSBC Bank Canada, allows all registered rugby clubs, as well as schools and community organizations in Canada, to submit an application for funding based on the guidelines and criteria provided by the program. All submissions will be given equal consideration and recipients of the grants will be announced later this year.
