Programs for helping
In celebration of our 10th anniversary season, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation partnered with the Pittsburgh Penguins players to present a new initiative, known as ‘The Pens Give.’
A new community project by the Penguins Foundation, Operation Restore will focus on the restoration and upkeep of Pittsburgh City and County green parks. Plans also include playground builds, paint revitalization, tree plantings, and more throughout the region. Further, the program is designed to engage employees of the Penguins and corporate partners, as well as the great people of the city, in volunteerism.
The Gameday Auction provides fans with unique Pittsburgh Penguins memorabilia only found at Penguins home games, while generating funds for our Foundation.
Our annual scholarship program was created to assist Western Pennsylvania high school seniors in their pursuit of academic achievement.
Grants, funded from the 50/50 Raffle, are awarded to qualifying organizations in two phases, the first in early February and the second 30 days after the completion of the Pittsburgh Penguins season. Grants are considered on a rolling basis and the application closes each spring at the conclusion of the Penguins regular season.
Our holiday programs help the Pittsburgh Penguins spread joy and cheer each November and December.
The wives and girlfriends of the Pittsburgh Penguins, known as the Lady Pens, support the Penguins Foundation in countless ways each season. On gamedays and within the community, you will always find these ladies lending their helping hands to the Pens Foundation and local nonprofit organizations.
The Penguins Foundation proudly supports our military veterans and honors their service to our country through various initiatives in an effort to thank them for their sacrifices for our freedom.
The 50/50 Raffle is conducted at every Pittsburgh Penguins home game with proceeds funding grants for eligible local 501(c)(3) charities who share our Foundation’s mission.
