In-kind contributions include autographed memorabilia, such as jerseys sticks, hats or pictures.

Home is where the heart is and here in Oil Country, this couldn’t ring more true. Proud supporters of Oil Country, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) has been contributing to our community’s heart beat since 2001. With a focus on programs that support education, health and wellness for youth, the Oilers Foundation is deeply committed to its goal of helping to enrich lives and eradicate social issues while finding long-term solutions to improve our home where we live, work and play.
Since its inception in 2001, the EOCF has contributed over $30 million to more than 2,700 charities, community groups and minor hockey programs. Thanks to the generosity of our valued hockey fans, the Foundation gives back in excess of $2.5 million annually to charities and minor hockey groups throughout Norther Alberta.
The EOCF will continue its legacy of giving back in Northern Alberta and with the Oilers move into Rogers Place, the Oilers Foundation has plenty to look forward to in the heart of downtown Edmonton.
