profit

without being charitable

must be charitable

Hockey Charity Survey
NON-SCIENTIFIC OPINIONS FROM 6 GRASS-ROOTS HOCKEY
CHARITIES/NON-PROFITS
(3 CANADIAN, 3 AMERICAN)
Working for my hockey charity/non-profit
has brought great meaning & satisfaction to
my life.
Hockey charities/non-profits are more
relevant today than ever before.
There's room for more hockey
charities/non-profits in the world.
Social media has enabled every
wannabe to try to reinvent the wheel
People do not understand the complexity
and challenges that hockey charities/non-
profits face.
I believe that professional hockey leagues (NHL,
AHL, ECHL) genuinely care about charitable causes.
I believe that professional hockey players genuinely
care about supporting charitable causes.
I believe governing bodies like IIHF, USA Hockey &
Hockey Canada care deeply about charitable
causes.
I believe hockey equipment companies
care deeply about charitable causes.

Editor's Notes

  1. Separating the non-profits from the charities; tax laws, and reporting regulations are distinct & different across the border
  2. Hockey Canada doesn’t publicly release their financial statements, and “non-profits” are not searchable with CRA
  3. Most data from 2014, St. Louis from 2012 (change of charity) Edmonton - $9.2M Revenue;,$8.6M Expense; Winnipeg - $11.8M Revenue, $5.17M Expense; Original Six (US). Bruins – Delaware North, Blackhawks – McCormick Foundation ($2.3B) & 55-page report, Rangers – Garden of Dreams/MSG, Flyers – Ed Snider, Detroit – Ilitch Charities
  4. Unsurprising that the cause is meaningful to the people running the organizations.
  5. Interesting that they still feel very relevant. No doubt because of the impact it’s having on their lives.
  6. Mixed opinions, but mostly the group feels there’s still room for more hockey charities.
  7. Well, this was a softball question. I think everybody in the room can agree about this, regardless of subject. But the implication is that too many people think they can just get on the social media horn to promote a cause, often without being prepared.
  8. This is safe to say about running any organization
  9. I find it interesting how the professional leagues are perceived, especially from some grass-roots organizations. This is not an indictment though.
  10. It goes without saying that there are players, current & former (PK, Shea Weber, Lemieux, Gretzky, Scott Gomez, Henrik Lundqvist) that are making an impact via their organizations. But there are a LOT of players that start charities because of ego or taxes.
  11. What does it say when grass-roots organizations feel like the governing bodies are disconnected?
  12. Equipment companies are obviously for profit. Everybody wants free equipment to use/donate. Not a surprising response.
