Four Pillars of the Florida Panthers

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.

Children's Health & Education

The Panthers Foundation supports organizations that promote education and support underprivileged children throughout the community. The goal is to provide these children with the education and tools necessary to become successful and productive citizens of our community.

Panther Conservation

The Panthers Foundation aims to connect and inform the fanbase with the team's namesake animal, the Florida panther. The Foundation's goal is to raise awareness about the Florida panther in an effort to protect and preserve their habitat in our own backyard. The club hosts a Panther Conservation Night each season that features educational tables with information from local conservation experts and organizations as well as in-game facts and fundraising opportunities.

Veterans' Issues

Veterans' Issues are a fundamental pillar of the Florida Panthers Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to supporting organizations that provide critical resources and services to active duty and retired military members. As part of the club's Heroes Among Us Program, the organization honors individuals who have served or currently serve in any branch of the military during Panthers home games at Amerant Bank Arena.

Youth Hockey

The Panthers Foundation is dedicated to growing the game of hockey in South Florida and giving everyone, from adults to youth organizations, a safe, positive and inclusive space to learn the sport. The main goal is to expose as many members of our community to the benefits of learning hockey, including the teamwork, comradery and communication skills that go along with playing the sport.
