The Minnesota Wild Foundation, with help from Wild players, supports pediatric medical causes by hosting events like "Wild About Children". In addition, the Minnesota Wild Foundation has assisted several 501(c)3 organizations fundraise through an in-area 50/50 Raffle. The 50/50 Raffle allows designated non-profits to hold a rafle during a Minnesota Wild home game and take 50% of those ticket sales back to their organization. The Minnesota Wild Foundation serves as the largest non-member funding source for Minnesota Hockey and provides fundraising opportunities for youth hockey associations across the state.
Since its inception in 2000, the Minnesota Wild hockey club has invested over $7.5 million back into our community through donations and service. Wild players remain committed to helping kids in many ways - by visiting sick children in hospitals, embracing a specific cause, donating tickets or suites to local charities or providing autographed merchandise for fundraising. Players' "Better Halves" get into the action as well by regularly hosting Wild BINGO at Children's Hospital and raising funds through their Mystery Puck sales as well as their annual Favorite Things basket auctions.
As an organization, our work in the community and on the ice is never done. We pledge to continue raising funds and giving back to our community, while being inspired by our passion for hockey and our compassion for those in need.
