“It’s an honor to work with the wonderful people at the Blue Jackets Foundation. They provide a wonderful contribution to the Columbus community specifically with Pediatric Cancer, Children’s Health and Safety, Education and in the development of Youth and Amateur Hockey” said Chris Wilson, 20×20 Display’s Creative Director. Wilson added, “Anything we can do to help promote such a valuable Columbus organization is very gratifying. The new Promotional Kiosks and Signage additions will be a wonderful tool for gaining more awareness in the community of this foundation’s good works”.
The Columbus Blue Jackets established the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation in Mar. 2000. This grant-making, 501(c) 3, public charity was formed to utilize the unique resources of its professional athletes, coaches and staff to help improve the quality of life throughout the community.
The Foundation donates time, resources and financial support to organizations committed to meeting the educational, cultural, health and wellness needs of people throughout Central Ohio. A primary focus of the Foundation is the “Stick with Kids” initiative from which a percentage of the annual proceeds are designated to the development of youth and amateur hockey.
The proceeds raised annually by the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation are designated as follows:
– 75%: Grant recipients throughout the community
– 25%: Youth and amateur hockey development
