“Since the creation of the Calgary Flames Foundation COVID-19 Community Support Program on March 21, we have had the privilege of seeing the amazing work charities in Calgary and southern Alberta have done to respond to a significant increase in need,” says Candice Goudie, Executive Director of the Calgary Flames Foundation. “It is thanks to Calgary Flames Foundation donors and participants of the online 50/50 program that this recent donation is possible.”

The mandate of the Calgary Flames Foundation is to improve the lives of southern Albertans through support of health and wellness, education and grassroots sports programs. Since the ownership group brought the team to Calgary in 1980 the Calgary Flames Foundation has injected millions into the community.
