Ancient Nor’Westers Athletic Association (ANAA) Fund

Dear Nor’Wester’s, Friends and Supporters,


In 2011 the Ancient Nor’Westers Athletic Association (ANAA) Endowment Fund was established to provide a method by which Nor’Westers, friends and supporters could support the NWAA through charitable donations.


The revenue and matching grants attracted by the Fund are used by the NWAA to fund scholarships, as well as capital projects to enhance our Club facilities. 


The Dave “Dutch” Holland Scholarships are presented annually to a junior female and male player continuing their education at a post- secondary institution. These individuals have shown dedication and leadership over their Nor’Wester rugby career, given back to the club by volunteering their time for club events, junior coaching, refereeing and will continue to play senior rugby with the Nor’Westers in the future.


Capital Projects – Funds received from the ANAA are used by the NWAA to fund improvements to the Clubhouse and fields.  Most recently funds from the ANAA helped to finish off the decking at the Clubhouse, including the railings and handicap access ramp.
