The Hockey Canada Foundation has established a series of funds to meet both present and future needs. Individuals, families, corporations or groups with a common interest can establish a separate fund to support a broad field of interest within Canadian hockey.
Hockey Canada Foundation Legacy Fund
An internally-restricted endowment fund established by the Hockey Canada Foundation Board of Directors. Income from the Legacy Fund will be used to help provide solutions to the immediate challenges facing Canadian hockey, while at the same time creating much needed stability for long-term planning.
Hockey Canada Foundation Heritage Fund
An endowment fund established to hold unrestricted gifts designated for permanent endowment. Income from the Heritage Fund will be used to provide the Hockey Canada Foundation Board of Directors with the flexibility to respond to the most pressing needs facing Canadian hockey.
Hockey Canada Foundation Flow-Through Fund
Gifts not designated to the endowment program will be deposited to this fund. The Flow-Through Fund will be used to fund activities for similar purposes as Hockey Canada Foundation endowment funds. Accumulated contributions from this fund will be disbursed during the year they are received.
Hockey Canada Foundation Operating Fund
A fund established for the purpose of supporting ongoing Hockey Canada Foundation operations. Contributions include those given for specific purposes related to the management of the foundation, along with any unrestricted donations as the board of directors may from time to time determine.
Molson Olympic Hockey Fund
A corporate community investment fund created to celebrate and commemorate Canada’s gold medal victories at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City. Established with a gift from Molson on behalf of the players of Canada’s gold medal-winning men's team, this special fund serves as permanent reminder of this historic event in Canada’s hockey history. Income from the fund will be used to fund the future development of Hockey Canada grassroots programs, activities and initiatives.
Named Endowment Funds
At the time the gift is made, a formal fund agreement is established between you and the Hockey Canada Foundation, outlining the purpose of the fund. The fund's initiating capital and any further additions are held in perpetuity and only the income earned is disbursed. You may name the fund for yourself or family members, for a company or a friend. Named funds can also have names that convey a specific goal or purpose, or identify a scholarship program.
