The Minnesota Wild Foundation announced the launch of the Wild Idea Grant Program that will administer up to $200,000 in one-time grants during the 2015-16 NHL season to non-profit organizations that help to advance the foundation’s mission to support the game of hockey and improve the lives of families in the State of Hockey.
Non-profit organizations focused on research, programs or projects that improve the lives of families with a child battling a serious illness, or those that grow the game of hockey by providing an introduction or access to the game, are encouraged to apply.
Applications for the Wild Idea Grant Program will be accepted online at wild.com/grants from October 8 to November 22, 2015. The Wild Foundation will distribute grants in increments of $10,000 to $50,000 during the latter portion of the 2015-16 Wild season.
