The Ottawa Senators Foundation empowers children and youth to reach their full potential by investing in social recreation and education programs that promote both physical and mental wellness.
In partnership with the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club, alumni association, corporate partners and fans, more than $100 million has been contributed to thousands of initiatives and charities in the National Capital Region. We are proud to make a direct impact in the lives of so many each year. During the 2016-17 hockey season we will provide more than $1 million of support to more than 50 charitable organizations in the National Capital Region.
What We Do
The Ottawa Senators Foundation believes that investing in programs and initiatives that promote both physical and mental wellness in our kids is a critical priority. We are committed to ensuring that kids are given the opportunity to be active, engaged and to feel good about themselves. This is how we help.
Did you know that more than one in five local kids don’t have access to after-school sports, recreation or social programs? The Ottawa Senators Foundation has made a commitment to change this statistic by investing in facilities and programs designed to reach this group.
Did you know that at the Grade 6 level only 57% of students met the provincial standard in mathematics?
