About the Fund

The Art Smith Amateur Sport Legacy Fund is a partnership between the Calgary Booster Club and the Parks Foundation Calgary. Together these two groups have created and will continue to build an endowment fund to provide much needed assistance for amateur athletes. Because The Art Smith Amateur Sport Legacy is an endowment fund, your gift can be used now and will still be at work for many years to come. This fund is named in honour of Art Smith, a founding member of the Calgary Booster Club, who was universally recognized as a great Canadian and popularly known as Mr. Calgary.
