Kids \'N Community Foundation Donates $436,600
RALEIGH, NC – Doug Warf, Vice President of Marketing for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the Kids ‘N Community Foundation has completed its 2012-13 year of funding and has donated a total of $436,600 to 26 different children’s charitable organizations in the Triangle and North Carolina. This grant cycle brings the Foundation and team’s donation totals to $11 million in cash and in-kind services since 1997.

GOAL (Growing Opportunities and Leaders) Grants are distributed each fall to two children’s non-profit organizations that focus on the health or educational needs of underserved populations. The Kids ‘N Community Foundation introduced GOAL Grants in 2012, and two organizations, Triangle Family Services and Marbles Kids Museum, each received two-year commitments of $100,000 ($50,000 per year). In addition, InterAct of Wake County and the YMCA of the Triangle each received three-year, $150,000 commitments. In the Fall of 2013, and each Fall afterwards, two non-profits will be awarded a new three-year, $150,000 GOAL Grant.

The Foundation issued 15 Game Changer Grants during their spring grant cycle, totaling $150,000. The Game Changer Grant recipients are: Assistance League of the Triangle, Flashes of Hope, Miracle League of the Triangle, Orange County Rape Crisis Center and Voices Together at the $5,000 level; Autism Society of North Carolina, BackPack Beginnings, Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate, Emily K Center and Hospice of Wake County at the $10,000 level; Children’s Flight of Hope, East Durham Children’s Initiative, North Carolina Amateur Sports, Read and Feed and Wake Education Partnership at the $15,000 level.

Future Canes Grants, awarded to seven youth hockey organizations, totaled $86,600. Future Canes Grants are provided to grow the sport of hockey throughout North Carolina, and the funds go towards scholarships and program costs to ensure that children who suffer financial restraints or disabilities are able to play ice hockey. Future Canes Grant recipients are: Carolina Lightning Hockey, Cape Fear Youth Hockey Association, Raleigh Youth Hockey Association, Triangle Special Hockey Association, Triangle Youth Hockey of North Carolina, Wilmington Icehawks and Winston-Salem Youth Hockey Association.

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.
