Bringing hockey to kids in low income neighborhoods and

more diversity to ice hockey

There are so many children in our less fortunate communities who cannot afford to play ice hockey. The Giving Dogs lessen the budget constraints of playing ice hockey. We offer scholarships that allow kids to join the team of their choice. We also donate hockey equipment, ice time and instruction to children in need. Through these efforts, we are helping bring more diversity and depth to ice hockey. 

No Players Left Behind

Our current program, NO PLAYERS LEFT BEHIND, takes into account our COVID-19 crisis. Even in the best of times, many children cannot afford to play ice hockey. They cannot pay the team fees and cannot buy the hockey equipment. And now, as local hockey programs have been forced to shut down because of COVID-19, families are forced to look to even more expensive rinks and teams. 

Your donations help these hockey hopefuls from low-income neighborhoods who would not otherwise be able to play ice hockey. We do not want children left behind because they cannot afford to play. Now more than ever it is important for children to have a safe place to play. A safe place to stay fit. A safe place to build confidence and self-esteem. And a safe place to see old friends and make new ones.

Please consider a donation to The Giving Dogs today. So many children are counting on your support. 


The Giving Dogs love ice hockey and want to help make it accessible to more children.

We are able to make a difference in part through the generous support of our donors, sponsors and partners. The Giving Dogs is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Giving Dogs Identification Number (EIN) is 84-3941823.
