“On behalf of the Hockey Alberta Foundation Board of Directors, I would like to thank the Gord Bamford and his team with the Gord Bamford Foundation for their generosity. But, bigger than the donation itself. is a partnership in making sure all kids in Alberta have the chance to play hockey. Together, with the support of special Teammates such as Gord and the Gord Bamford Foundation, the Every Kid Every Community grant program will continue to grow, leading to more Alberta communities and kids enjoying the great game of hockey.”
Hockey Alberta identified the need for the support of existing and the creation of more diverse hockey programs in our province. With the support of the Hockey Alberta Foundation & Teammates (sponsors, donors & partners), the Every Kid Every Community Grant program was established as a quarterly granting program to support hockey in Alberta communities.
Hockey is a great way for kids to be active, healthy and surrounded by positive leaders in their community. Keeping kids active in sport helps kids become more physically fit, creates a safe and fun environment and forms friendships through sport.
Together our goal is to have hockey accessible to every kid in Alberta regardless of the barriers. We are here so Every kid in Every Community can play hockey throughout Alberta.
