Grindstone Award Foundation provides opportunities to young female hockey players under the age of 19 who have a desire to play, but are unable to for financial reasons. The Grindstone Award Foundation is a registered charity that hopes to get more girls on the ice and grow female hockey across the Nation. To date, they have provided 119 grants at a total amount of $60,000.

Their mandate has become even more critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the pandemic has put a severe financial strain on families and that it has cost some children the ability to play hockey. They want to ensure that female hockey players all across Canada are aware of Grindstone and can reach out to them for support, so that they can help get them back on the ice once it’s safe to do so.

Do you know of a female hockey player who is being kept off the ice due to financial constraints? @GrindstoneAward is here to help. Check out their website for more information on their grants!

Applications close on June 30, 2021 for the 2021-2022 season.
