GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Arizona Coyotes Foundation, the official charity of the Arizona Coyotes, recently launched a new fundraising campaign through GiveStep.com that makes it possible for Coyotes fans to support their favorite teams off the ice by connecting their donations to what happens on the ice.
As the team competes in the competitive Western Conference, Coyotes fans are now able to donate to the Arizona Coyotes Foundation when players like Captain Shane Doan and defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson record a point; when goalie Mike Smith makes a save; or when the team records a win.
"We are excited to partner with GiveStep.com to provide our fans with a fun way to donate and give back to the community while following the Coyotes team and our players," said Coyotes Co-Owner, President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc.
"My colleagues and I at GiveStep.com are both thrilled and honored to partner with the Arizona Coyotes Foundation," said Adam Bagarella, GiveStep.com co-founder and CEO. "The Coyotes are a leader in the Valley community and we are confident that our platform will help their foundation continue to serve the people of Arizona."
