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 Boston Bruins and the Boston Bruins Foundation have partnered with Project Green Schools and Walmart for the Green Up New England Challenge, which aims to develop Green Student Leaders in schools throughout New England. To become a Green Student Leader and participate in the challenge, administrators, teachers, and students can fill out the entry form on projectgreenschools.org by March 22, 2017. Schools across New England that enter the challenge will be asked to compete in energy reduction, waste reduction, water reduction, best green school practices, best green community practices, and best green sports practices. Awards will be given for each category. A team of judges will measure submitted applications on overall concept, environmental impact, creativity, number of participants engaged, and how effective schools were at getting the message out.
