About Canucks for Kids Fund:

Canucks for Kids Fund (CFKF) raises funds for charities that support children’s health and wellness, development of grassroots hockey, and education in British Columbia. CFKF raises awareness and funds through several initiatives, including the CFKF 50/50, the Sports Celebrities Festival, and the CFKF Telethon.

Canucks for Kids Fund granted $3.9m in F2019. Most of the funds went to children’s health and wellness organizations, including $1.4m to Canucks Autism Network (CAN), $651k to BC Children’s Hospital, and $642k to Canucks Place Children’s Hospital. An additional 20 charities received grants from CFKF. On a much smaller scale, at around 4% the size of its grants, the charity also has its own educational and hockey programs.

In F2018, CAN supported over 4,768 individuals and families living with autism. CAN trained over 100 Rogers Arena Staff on how to detect and interact with people with autism.

In F2018, Canucks for Kids Fund provided $2,500 Trevor Linden Community Spirit Scholarships to four BC high school graduates for outstanding leadership through their community. CFKF has awarded 32 students since the program was introduced in 2008.

Fin’s Friends, one of CFKF’s educational programs, teaches primary students across BC proper character and social responsibilities. Over the past 15 years, over 125,000 primary students and 5,000 primary classrooms participated in the program.
