In January of 2011, a small group of adult recreation league hockey players made a pledge to honor a fallen teammate by creating a very unique foundation focused on helping families in their time of need. Utilizing a very successful strategy consisting of several annual fundraisers, we have provided financial support totaling over $4 million in direct aid to families!


Always There To Help With Amazing Acts of Human Kindness

From the weekend warrior recovering from a nasty injury or serious illness to the grieving family that has lost a loved one, DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation is always there to help. By providing resources and countless amazing acts of human kindness, we have not only changed the lives of our recipients but also the lives of our members as well. If you haven’t had a chance yet, please take a few minutes to check out our “Giving Back” page and hockey non-profit fundraisers. Our recipients are a very diverse group that are all members of the tight knit part of our hockey community.

You Caught It!

The Hockey Family Is A Compassionate One

Magic Moments Are the Cornerstone of DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation!

DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation utilizes a 360° Support Model. This model looks at the needs families, and individuals have beyond giving them a one time check. This could include financial counseling, legal support, home repairs or modifications, mental health support, housing, transportation, adaptability and accessibility, mentoring, scholarships, support networks for veterans, and creating intentional emotional and community support. But it’s our ability to provide some truly memorable experiences, as well as “magic moments,” that are the cornerstone of DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation and create real hope and joy in a recipient’s life.


Volunteers Make it Happen at Our Non-Profit Foundation

None of this is possible without our incredible army of volunteers and selfless individuals who have embraced our non-profit hockey organization and cause to make the world a better place. This tireless group has proven that ordinary people can truly do extraordinary things.
