The LA Kings are proud to be an integral part of the Los Angeles community both on and off the ice. With the help of players, alumni and staff, the organization is committed to creating opportunities, raising funds and driving awareness for educational, recreational and health-related causes. In all, the team's efforts are estimated to make a direct impact on the lives of nearly one million children annually.
Kings Care Foundation
A cornerstone of the team's outreach to the community is the Kings Care Foundation (Federal Tax ID #95-4443065), the award winning, non-profit children's charity of the LA Kings. In its twenty-one-year history, the Kings Care Foundation (federal tax ID number 95-4443065) has donated over $11 million in monetary and in-kind support to the local Los Angeles community. The award-winning charity of the LA Kings is dedicated to providing health, educational and recreational opportunities for youth of the Greater Los Angeles area.
Among the foundation's ongoing pledges to the city of Los Angeles is a $1,000,000 commitment to Children's Hospital Los Angeles in support of the Neurosurgery and Pathology Departments, a $1,000,000 donation towards capital improvements to Loma Linda Ronald McDonald house in conjunction with the Hope Reigns Foundation, a $1,000,000 commitment to fund a new YMCA Ball Hockey program at all 26 LA locations, and a $2,500,000 contribution to Discovery Cube LA to construct and maintain a permanent "Science of Hockey" interactive, education exhibit.Community programs such as "Fit To Be King Runners Club", "Bailey's LA Kings Royal Readers" and "LA Kings Street Knights" serve as cost-free or low-cost resources for the local community. It is through these grassroots initiatives, among others, that the team is able to effect positive change and promote health, education and recreation in Los Angeles.
