Community Giving

The Staal Family Foundation harnesses passion for hockey to make a real difference in the lives of children, young people and families who are struggling with cancer.

Every year we work with community partners across a number of community, sports, health and child & youth projects.

From children’s hospitals, treatment centres, rehabilitation clinics, health care facilities and summer camps, community is at the heart of everything we do, guiding how we help.


Here are some of our recent community giving projects.


Smilezone Foundation

Smilezone Foundation is a registered Canadian charity committed to putting smiles on kids' faces. Smilezone’s mission is to create, build and transform areas (“Zones”) in hospitals and other health care settings, in order to improve the lives of children facing illnesses, disabilities, and physical and emotional obstacles—ultimately putting smiles on their faces!

Camp Quality

Camp Quality Northwestern Ontario is a volunteer-driven non-profit charitable organization which provides uplifting and empowering camp experiences for kids with cancer and their siblings. It serves the Northwestern Ontario region. Its year-round programming and signature week-long camp gives its campers, ages 4-18, the power to turn challenges into adventures. Camp Quality’s philosophy is that “together, we can do anything, be anything and achieve everything.”


Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation

The Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation raises funds to support programs, equipment and services in Thunder Bay and throughout northwestern Ontario that improve patient care. 100% of the money raised stays in northwestern Ontario.
