ANAHEIM DUCKS FOUNDATION
The Anaheim Ducks Foundation serves as the team’s main charitable beneficiary.  Introduced at the opening of the 2008-09 season, the mission of the Anaheim Ducks Foundation is to facilitate and support programs that produce positive change for children and families throughout Southern California by providing educational opportunities, broadening access to the sport of hockey and addressing the health and wellness needs of our community.

The Anaheim Ducks Foundation raises money at various fundraisers such as the Anaheim Ducks Golf Classic, Meet the Team, Dux in Tux and a variety of in-game fundraisers.  Through the Foundation, the Anaheim Ducks look to support exemplary Southern California nonprofit organizations and to help make a positive impact in the local community with programs such as Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E.

Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E. (Scholastic Curriculum of Recreation & Education) offers free standards-based curriculum, resources and incentives for teachers and students. Through the establishment of two major initiatives, In-Class Education and Physical Education, Ducks S.C.O.R.E. uses hockey to teach educational themes, reinforce the importance of positive character building and reward youth for their dedication for pursuing academic excellence. In addition to its own programming, the Ducks support various community events by sending the team’s players, coaches and front office staff to schools.  

The award-winning Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E. Program was developed in 2005 for the students of Southern California to address healthy living habits, academic excellence, and to promote the importance of balancing these two practices into their daily routine.  Over 25,000 students participate in this program annually from San Diego, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside and Los Angeles Counties and over 100,000 students have taken part in this program since its inception.  In addition to being recognized by the California State Assembly for its educational initiatives, the S.C.O.R.E. program has received the Celebrate Literacy Awards from both the local and state chapters of the International Reading Association.
