RALEIGH, NC – Doug Warf, Vice President of Marketing for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the Foundation has selected Durham Nativity School and Transitions LifeCare as two new recipients of GOAL Grants.

The GOAL Grant for Durham Nativity School will be used to fund the addition of a fifth grade at the school where they provide a tuition-free, enriched learning environment and a 12-year support system for boys. At Transitions LifeCare, the grant will help launch a pediatric palliative and hospice care program for children, birth to 18 years old, facing life-limiting illness.

GOAL (Growing Opportunities and Leaders) Grants were introduced by the Kids ‘N Community Foundation in 2012. GOAL Grant recipients receive $50,000 each year for three years, totaling a $150,000 contribution. Durham Nativity School and Transitions LifeCare join East Durham Children’s Initiative, The Hill Center / John Avery Boys and Girls Club, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County and Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC as current GOAL Grant recipients. This fall, the Foundation will donate a total of $300,000 to these six groups.

The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much-needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. In 2014-15, the Foundation donated $576,000 in cash grants to 29 different children’s charities and foundations in North Carolina. In addition to the Foundation, the Hurricanes annually contribute to the community in numerous ways, bringing the team’s annual charitable giving to more than $1 million in cash and in-kind services. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities, and the Hurricanes take pride in giving back to the community.
