“For us doing well on the ice is just one measurement of success, the wellbeing of the communities around us are equally as important, which is why we launched our Foundation.

The Foundation enables us to work with local partners who help us have a positive impact on people.”

Michelle Lee

Foundation Chair

About the Foundation

The Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Victoria Royals. Success for us does not only mean success on the ice, but also in our communities. This off-ice success is achieved by working closely together with local organizations across the Southern Vancouver Island.​


The Victoria Royals Foundation strives to improve the lives of Southern Islanders through the support of health and wellness, education and grassroots sports programming.


Using the power of sport to create healthier communities.​

How We Make an Impact


One of our biggest tools for giving back is our 50/50 draw, which happens every home game of the season. We work together with our charitable partners to gather funds for their operation through a revenue share model. As of 2022/23 we also offer tickets to be purchased online without having to physically be at the arena

Gameday Inclusion

Where possible we provide opportunities for charitable partners to be a part of the gameday presentation (puck drops, intermission games). Additionally, we provide partners the opportunity to setup information booths on our concourses, helping them reach our audience.​


Our staff and players actively volunteer, helping with causes around health, wellness and education, with a special emphasis on minor hockey. We support the growth of junior hockey on the island by volunteering at practices and tournaments.​

Community Partnerships

We work with our select charitable partners by providing donations (in-kind or monetary) to support the work they’re doing to better our communities. The Royals also participate in partner events, helping these events draw more support.​​

(Coming February 16th 2024) Royals Hockey Help Fund

Every hockey club needs a hand at times and the Victoria Royals Foundation is there to help. Our Royals Hockey Help Fund is a brand new tool for Minor Hockey Teams to request support from the Victoria Royals Foundation. Need tournament help? Need Equipment help? Have a program in mind that needs funds for starting up? We will review all requests and based on available resources and fit provide support to grow our beloved sport on the island.



Perennial Partners

As we look to create healthier communities through the power of sports, a lot of this work will be achieved through supporting the many great minor hockey associations and programs on the island. By supporting the growth of these organizations, we are also stewarding the growth of grassroots hockey on the island, ensuring a stable environment for future players to develop in.​

The following partners are seen as perennial partners of the Victoria Royals Foundation.​

Seasonal Partners 23/24

The Southern Island has numerous great organizations which keep our communities healthy. The Victoria Royals Foundation works with a variety of charities & non-profits throughout the year, allowing us to adjust to changes in our market, where we can direct support to the greatest need, whilst still staying true to our mission. Partners for our larger charitable components (5050 Draws) are set on a season-by-season base, based on where we see our foundation making the greatest impact. ​

Below are some of our current partners for the ongoing season.​​
