Community Impact

The Sharks Foundation leverages the Sharks brand to positively impact the community in two ways: (1) It implements effective programs that enhance the lives of youth and families and (2) It raises funds and redistributes the money back into the community by donating to high-performing non-profits and executing impactful projects.

During the 2014-15 season, the Sharks Foundation dispersed nearly $1.4 million in funding to support the community and, specifically, Santa Clara County. Since its inception in 1994, the Foundation has given nearly $8.6 million to over 160 non-profit organizations.

While monetary donations are important, they are not the only way the Sharks Foundation gives back. Each season Sharks players, coaches, broadcasters and front office staff volunteer hundreds of hours to support local organizations. For the San Jose Sharks and the Sharks Foundation, it is about dedication both on and off the ice.
