Mission & Background
The Sharks Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the lives of youth and families in our community with an emphasis in the areas of Education, Health and Safety, and Character Development. The Sharks Foundation supplies emergency aid when appropriate, executes unique and relevant programming, supports the advancement of youth hockey and provides financial support and resources to organizations that enrich the lives of those in need.
Each year the Sharks Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals in our community who support our efforts to improve the lives of youth in Santa Clara County. All donations received are used to fund our Grant Process and our numerous programming efforts. Thanks to your generous donations, by the end of the 2014-15 season, the Sharks Foundation will donate over $1.4 million to support the community. Since our inception in 1994, the Sharks Foundation has been able to distribute nearly $8.6 million to over 120 organizations.
