The Florida Panthers Foundation is pleased to relaunch the Community Champions Grant Program for the 2019-20 season. The Community Champions Grant Program allows charitable organizations throughout South Florida to request financial support for programs and initiatives that benefit the local community. At each of our 41 home games throughout the season, the Foundation will recognize and award one grant for up to $25,000 to a local organization.

Who We Support

The Florida Panthers Foundation was established to benefit the South Florida community by focusing on four priority areas: building the game of hockey for children and youth, supporting health and education initiatives for children, advocating for and supporting veterans' issues, and raising awareness about the endangered Florida panther.

Veterans' Issues
Youth Hockey
Panther Conservation
Children's Health & Education

About Florida Panthers Foundation

The Florida Panthers Foundation serves as the team's main charitable beneficiary. Re-introduced in the middle of the 2013-14 season under the ownership of Mr. Vincent Viola and Mr. Doug Cifu, the vision of the Florida Panthers Foundation is to make a positive philanthropic impact on the South Florida community and beyond. Through partnerships, grants, and community programs, the Foundation will focus on four priorities, including youth hockey, children and youth, veterans and the endangered Florida panther. The Panthers Foundation raises money through various fundraisers and in-game initiatives, including the 50/50 Raffle, jersey and memorabilia auctions, "Puck for a Buck", outside events and other opportunities to engage fans in support of the Foundation. Through the Foundation, the Florida Panthers looks to support exemplary South Florida nonprofit organizations that help make a positive impact in the local community.
