Kids 'N Community Foundation
As "The Heart of the Hurricanes," the Kids 'N Community Foundation strives to meet the health and educational needs of underserved populations and strengthen youth hockey in our community through programming and financial assistane to local, youth-oriented organizations.
Since the establishment of the non-profit Foundation in 1997, over $14.5 million in cash and in-kind services has been awarded to non-profit organizations that focus on enhancing the lives of youth in our community. With the ongoing support of our annual special events, Hurricanes players, staff and the corporate community, the Kids 'N Community Foundation is able to fund many causes including scholarship programs, youth hockey initiatives, education and literacy efforts, health programs and the arts.
During the 2017-18 season, the Foundation awarded $495,000 in cash grants to 24 local nonprofits and youth hockey organizations.
