The Milos Raonic Foundation announced in February 2013 that its first gift will support Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation in Toronto, Ontario. The $40,000 gift will create The Milos Raonic Kids Agility Clinic at Holland Bloorview that will nurture some of Canada’s future paralympians. The clinic will help kids and youth who have amputations and other disabilities lead healthy and active lives.
In addition, The Milos Raonic Foundation will grant a further $30,000 to match gifts to support the development of a pediatric version of the LC Knee™, an innovative and low-cost prosthetic knee developed by Holland Bloorview engineer scientist, Dr. Jan Andrysek. This functional and stable prosthetic knee allows individuals with limb loss to regain a high-level of mobility at a projected cost of less than $100. The Milos Raonic Foundation will match donations from the general public for this innovative prosthetic.
“Holland Bloorview is a great organization. I hope the clinic will encourage kids to be healthy and active, and that sport may open up as many opportunities for them as it did for me,” says Raonic.
The Milos Raonic Foundation is not currently accepting unsolicited applications for grants. If you have an innovative idea related to the mission and priorities of the Foundation, however, please mail a one page summary of your proposal to the Foundation’s address listed on this website. We will follow up if we have any questions but will not be able to respond otherwise. Please note that, at the present time, the Milos Raonic Foundation is only able to fund initiatives undertaken by registered Canadian charities.
