The Vancouver Giants Hockey Club has a long and proud history of giving back to our community. We are honoured to work closely with a number of charitable organizations and causes, just a few of which are listed below.


IN-HOUSE PROGRAMS

MINOR HOCKEY FUNDRAISING
The Vancouver Giants are proud to be in partnership with the various Minor Hockey Associations throughout the Lower Mainland, reaching players from South Delta to Squamish, the Sunshine Coast to Aldergrove, and all points in between! Participating associations partake in ticket sales and 50/50 sales to raise funds, and together, we have helped Lower Mainland Minor Hockey groups raise almost $3,000,000 during our 10 seasons of existence!

BMO READ TO SUCCEED
The Vancouver Giants, along with the generous support of education partners, BMO Bank of Montreal, Save On Foods, Subway, and Fortis BC, are pleased to present the BMO Read to Succeed Literacy Initiative, now in its tenth year. Last season, the Read to Succeed Literacy Initiative reached out to 77 schools and over 16,000 students from across the Lower Mainland promoting the importance of reading and physical fitness. It's estimated that over 100,000 children have participated in this program since its inception. Click HERE for more information on the program and how your school can get involved.

WHL EDUCATION PROGRAM
Our dedication to the education of our players is an important aspect of each player's training and development off the ice. The WHL stand behind this commitment to education creating a strong partnership. Some highlights of the education program are:

  • For every season played in the WHL, players are entitled to a 1-year post secondary scholarship
  • Over 160 WHL Graduate Players receive full WHL Scholarships each year
  • Since 1993 close to 3,000 WHL Scholarships have been awared
  • The WHL is the Leading Provider of Academic Scholarships in Western Canada


In 2004-2005 the Vancouver Giants were named the WHL Scholastic Team of the Year, while star forward Gilbert Brule was named the WHL and CHL Scholastic Player of the Year.

TEDDY BEAR TOSS - Saturday December 6  
Join us for this annual favourite! Bring a stuffed animal to the game on Saturday December 6 when the Giants host the Saskatoon Bladse, or buy one on the concourse with proceeds going to the CKNW Orphans' Fund and the Province Empty Stocking Fund. Then when the Giants score their first goal of the night... THROW THEM ON THE ICE!!! We'll collect the stuffies and work with our partners at the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau to ensure they find a warm, loving home in time for Christmas. It's an experience you'll never forget

  Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society
We encourage fans to donate to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. We have donation bins a select games throughout the season where fans can donate. The team makes regular visits to the Food Bank Warehouse to help sort food and we encourage fans to do so too!
  BC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Giants Co-Owner Michale Buble is a proud supporter of BC Childrens' Hospital Foundation, having donated countless dollars and hours to their cause over the course of his career. With the Giants, Michael has donated a suite for the entire season which is used to give deserving families a night out to cheer on the Giants! Also, Giants players and staff make regular visits to the hospital throughout the season.
