Gift In Kind Requests

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation is pleased to offer support through in-kind donations to registered charitable organizations (as defined by the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency with a BN# that ends in RR0001) in Northern and Central Alberta, whose programs support education, health and wellness for youth.

While the EOCF supports many worthy causes, it is impossible to support every request that we receive.  The following areas/groups are precluded from support by the EOCF:

  • Minor sport associations and teams
  • Organizations not located in Northern or Central Alberta
  • Sponsorship of events
  • Prizing or giveaways
  • Religious or fraternal organizations
  • Individuals
  • Political causes or candidates
  • Advertising
  • Endowment funds
  • Third party fundraising - defined as an event put on by one community group or organization for the benefit of another group or charitable organization
  • Capital Campaigns
  • Capital Projects (such as playgrounds)

In-kind contributions of autographed memorabilia, which may include jerseys, sticks, hats or pictures, are made on an ongoing basis. All requests for in-kind donations must be submitted in writing on company letterhead or via online application form a minimum of six weeks prior to your event.

Faxed requests, emailed requests and phone calls will not be accepted.

How will I know if my request has been accepted?

Organizations will be contacted by telephone if their request is approved and by mail if it is not.  The EOCF will do its best to reply to your request within six to eight weeks of receiving it. Please do not call to follow up on your request as we are unable to provide status updates.


The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation cares deeply about our Community. Established in 2001, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) continues the Oilers legacy of giving back by contributing its unique resources and financial support to charitable organizations that serve the communities of Northern Alberta. With a focus on education, health and wellness for youth in Oil Country, the EOCF is dedicated to building strong, vibrant and safe communities by demonstrating philanthropic leadership.

Led by a dedicated community Board of Directors, the EOCF has developed a number of programs and partnerships that target those who need it most.

The EOCF raises its funds through a variety of fundraising initiatives that take place during Oilers home games and the generous contributions of Oilers fans and friends.

The Foundation gives back in excess of $2.5 million annually to charitable organizations registered with Revenue Canada whose programs support education, health and wellness for youth throughout Oil Country.
