Kids \'N Community Foundation to Donate $300,000

RALEIGH, NC – Doug Warf, Senior Director of Marketing for the Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the Carolina Hurricanes Kids 'N Community Foundation has completed its spring grant process, the latter of two grant cycles during the 2010-11 season, and will donate $304,900 to 44 different children’s charitable organizations in the Triangle and North Carolina.

The Kids 'N Community Foundation received a record 87 grant requests during this spring cycle. Thanks in large part to the Sixth Annual Casino Night and Wine Tasting, sponsored by Convergence Technologies, which raised more than $250,000, the Foundation was able to respond to that demand. With the spring grants, the Foundation has new record highs for both the spring cycle donation total, and the number of organizations assisted in any single grant cycle. For the season, the Foundation has now donated $539,771 to 71 different children's charities, marking the second-highest donation total in the Foundation's history and establishing a new record for number of charities assisted. 

The Kids ‘N Community Foundation assisted 11 new charities this spring, including A Child’s Place of Charlotte, which provides opportunities for homeless children in Mecklenburg County, the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, which fills backpacks with basic essentials for children in need, and the Scotland County Education Foundation, which uses funding to run a summer reading program for elementary school-aged children. The full list of spring Kids ‘N Community Foundation grant recipients include: Rocking Horse Ranch, Spare Some for Autism, Assistance League of the Triangle, Junior Achievement of Central North Carolina, Genesis Home, Boy Scouts - Occoneechee Council, House of Hope, Crayons 2 Calculators, Museum of Life and Science, Wake Education Partnership, Alice Aycock Poe Center for Health Education, Family Violence Prevention Center of Orange County, Salvation Army of Wake County, N.C. Bankers Association, Ronald McDonald House - Chapel Hill, Junior Achievement of Eastern North Carolina, SouthLight, North Carolina Symphony, Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate Program, Voices Together in Education, SEEDS, First Tee of the Triangle, Prevent Child Abuse N.C., North Carolina Amateur Sports, Miracle League of the Triangle, Be Active North Carolina, Haven House Services, Duke Children's Hospital, Marbles Kids Museum, Autism Society of N.C., SAFEchild, Teach for America - Eastern N.C., Triangle Community Foundation, Literacy Council of Wake County, Wake County 4-H - Making Magic, Food Bank of Central and Eastern N.C., Triangle Family Services, Wake Teen Medical Services, InterAct, Raleigh Youth Hockey Association and YMCA of the Triangle.

The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. 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 more than $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities and the Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
