Capital Impact Fund
To Help Kids with Financial Barriers Access and Play the Game


The Capital Impact Fund was established to raise money designated to providing resources to organizations that help provide access to the game of hockey. By focusing on eliminating cost barriers, the goal is to ensure that anyone who wants to play, watch, teach, officiate, or otherwise engage with the sport of hockey can. The objective is access in all forms and will concentrate, but not be limited to: equipment, ice time, school programs, program fees and access to the game.

Fundraising has begun. Initially, the Capitals will identify organizations that will benefit from the fund with the goal of eventually moving to an application process for grants. To donate please fill out the form on this page.
