When the ownership group brought the Flames to Calgary in 1980 their mandate, which is still prominent today, was to ensure that the Calgary Flames have a positive impact on the quality of life in southern Alberta. Since its inception the Foundation, with the support of partners and donors, has raised millions for education, health and wellness, and amateur and grassroots sports. Every season, the Calgary Flames Foundation raises over $4 million in support of these three key areas.
