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. Formed in 1996, the Kings Care Foundation has donated over $9 Million in monetary and in-kind support to local organizations.
Among the foundation's ongoing pledges to the city of Los Angeles is a $1,000,000 commitment to the departments of Neurosurgery and Pathology at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, a $1,000,000 donation to Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times to fund the construction of the camp's Dining Hall and Activity Center and a $2,500,000 commitment to Discovery Cube Los Angeles to construct and maintain the "Science of Hockey" permanent, educational 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.
