Hockey Coaches Care is an organization committed to helping members of
the amateur hockey community in times of need, as well as organizations
within the amateur hockey community that seek to serve the best
interests of its members.
Funding for Hockey Coaches Care, a tax-exempt, 501 (c) (3) organization incorporated in the state of Maine, comes from a wide range of individuals and organizations. A portion of the start-up funding for Hockey Coaches Care came from the Shawn Walsh Foundation, a fund set up to honor the late University of Maine head coach.
Hockey Coaches Care will consider applications for grants twice a year, with individual and organizational awards (capped at $6,000) issued in May and November of each year.
Who does it help?
"Hockey Coaches Care" has been designed to help a coach or family member or other member of the greater amateur hockey community who is ill or injured in an accident or who has lost a job or has in some other way come upon hard times.
