OUR MISSION

Vision

To make a positive impact on South Florida by addressing and supporting the unique needs of the community.

 

Mission

Through partnerships, grants, and community programs, the Foundation will focus on supporting the following priorities:

 

1.     Children & Youth

Health & Fitness

Encourage physical activity and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle for all children and youth of South Florida.  Through youth athletic programs, the Panthers will help young individuals develop as athletes and leaders who understand the value of commitment, discipline, teamwork, and sportsmanship.

 

Education

Promote the value of educational programs that will help all young people, especially underserved youth to develop the knowledge and skills they need to prepare them for success in life. 

 

2.     Veterans

Provide quality and effective programming to support United States military veterans and their families, in addition to promoting awareness of key issues facing veterans today, including Traumatic Brain Injury, mental health, suicide, homelessness, etc.

 

 

3.     Florida Panther

Preserve one of Florida’s most beautiful and exotic endangered species, and our team’s beloved mascot, the Florida panther.  

 

The Florida Panthers also recognizes the importance of providing support as specific needs in the community arise, such as hurricane relief or other relief surrounding a catastrophic event.   

 

Who We Are

The Florida Panthers Foundation serves as the team’s main charitable beneficiary. Re-introduced in the middle of the 2013-14 season under the ownership of Mr. Vincent Viola and Mr. Doug Cifu, the vision of the Florida Panthers Foundation is to make a positive impact on South Florida by addressing and supporting the unique needs of the community. Through partnerships, grants, and community programs, the Foundation will focus on three priorities, including children and youth, veterans and the Florida panther. The Panthers Foundation raises money through various initiatives and fundraisers and in-game initiatives, including the 50/50 Raffle, jersey and memorabilia auctions, “Puck for a Buck” and other opportunities to engage fans in support of the Foundation.  Through the Foundation, the Florida Panthers looks to support exemplary South Florida nonprofit organizations that help make a positive impact in the local community.
