The Boston Bruins Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists charitable organizations that demonstrate a commitment to enhancing the quality of life for children throughout New England. The Foundation provides grants to organizations that meet the standards of its mission, concentrating on academics, athletics, community outreach and health. We believe that focusing and developing these four areas in children's lives creates a solid foundation, strong support system and ultimately leads them to be an impactful member of their community.
The Corey C. Griffin NHL Alumni Pro-Am, in partnership with the Boston Bruins Foundation and the NHL Alumni Association, is a dream come true for any lifelong hockey fan. Participants get the chance to play with and against some of the greatest players of our time to raise money for the Boston Children's Hospital, a leader in the care and research of children's health.
