A HELPING HAND

HOW HWH GETS INVOLVED

Hockey With Heart has established a simple, yet effective fundraising request process to access prospective requests for those seeking support.  The Hockey With Heart committee meets regularly to review requests for funding based on:

Impact on the community or individual

Objective of the request

Amount requested and the measurable impact of the request on the cause

The potential to engage broad support from the UMHC membership

HOW WE DO IT

Building a Stronger Community Together

Funds needed to take on the various causes we support come from several sources.  A significant contribution comes directly from the Unionville Men’s Hockey Club through an annual contribution made by each of our players.  Each hockey season, a portion of every players registration fee is earmarked for  the Hockey With Heart program and used to support the various causes and programs we engage with.  Additional fundraising initiatives are undertaken throughout the year to augment the financial support from our players and to further enhance awareness of our initiatives including:

Annual UMHC Players Directory

Provides advertising opportunities for local businesses & leaders to promote their goods & services, enhancing community ties.

Corporate Partners/Sponsors

Key contributors providing both monetary & in-kind support, ensuring stability & growth for the organization's mission.

Community events like BBQs

Vital for raising funds & building unity. Various initiatives create a platform for engagement & organizational visibility.

Individual & private donations

Crucial pillars of support. Generous contributions from people and entities reinforce the cause & its objectives.
