The TNYF is the charitable arm of True North Sports + Entertainment and the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose Hockey Clubs. The 50/50 programs of both the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose are the primary source of funding for the TNYF. Funds raised support the foundation’s three core programs – the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy, Project 11 and Camp Manitou – and allow the foundation to continue to make meaningful contributions to underserved youth in our community.
“Our foundation programs rely on the generosity of hockey fans in our province, and the postponement of games during the NHL season pause has significantly reduced funding that came from 50/50 sales, which our programs heavily depend on,” said Dwayne Green, Executive Director of the TNYF. “We hope that the away-game 50/50 program will bring some extra excitement for fans as they enjoy rebroadcasts of highlight Winnipeg Jets games, while also helping to ensure continuity of foundation programming that many Manitoba youth and their families rely on.”
Last year, the TNYF had a positive impact on more than 42,000 members of our community and the foundation continues to strive to do more to empower the potential in underserved youth across Manitoba.
