Funding Requests

The EOCF is a registered charity dedicated to improving the quality of life in Edmonton and the region while making our communities better while fostering a culture of "giving back".

Our activities, programs and funding decisions are focused on the following target groups and areas:

  1. Programs aimed at those most vulnerable in our community, especially in Edmonton's downtown,
  2. Investing in the community through hockey, with specific focus on youth hockey programming to increase participation of under-represented groups in our community.

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation has teamed up with the Hockey Alberta Foundation to support grassroots hockey in Northern and Central Alberta. The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation donation allows the Hockey Alberta Foundation and Hockey Alberta to support grassroots minor hockey initiatives and ensures every kid in every community has a chance to participate in a hockey program. Hockey Alberta Members can read more about the Grant Program and apply by clicking here.
