Kids \'N Community Foundation Grants $220,169

Spring/Summer grants to 20 area charities brings year-end total to record $578,094

RALEIGH, NC—Doug Warf, Manager of Community Relations and Executive Director of the Carolina Hurricanes’ Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that 20 charities will receive grants during the Foundation’s spring/summer grant cycle, with the grants totaling $220,169.

The grants bring the Foundation’s year-end cash total to a new record for annual giving of $578,094, distributed to 37 different state-wide charity organizations, surpassing the previous of $477,162 set in 2001-02. In the past two seasons, the Foundation has donated cash to 57 different children’s charities totaling $985,094 thanks to the hard work and giving of the Hurricanes, the team’s fans and local business and organizations like the Carolina Ale House.

Among the 20 recipients of the spring/summer grants are small, grassroots organizations like April’s Angels and The Caring Community Foundation, as well as larger charities like the John Avery Boys and Girls Club in Durham, Communities in Schools of Wake and Durham Counties and the Raleigh Youth Hockey Association. One new grant recipient is Marbles Kids Museum, which will create an interactive simulation of Hurricanes hockey inside their newly redesigned space (formerly Exploris) in downtown Raleigh. A complete listing of grant recipients is available on the Kids ‘N Community Foundation’s page at www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.

The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. With ongoing support from annual special events and the corporate community, the Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s related initiatives. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions of over $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina, such as Wake County Communities in Schools, Danialle Karmanos’ Work it Out Program, YMCA of the Triangle Area and the Boys and Girls Club. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities. The Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
