Anonymous donor offers to match gifts to women's hockey on Giving Tuesday

The Concordia Stingers women's hockey program is pleased to announce you can double your gift to the team this Giving Tuesday thanks to an anonymous benefactor who will match up to a total of $5,000 in donations.

“We are extremely grateful for the support,” said interim head coach Caroline Ouellette. “We believe strongly in the direction of our program and it’s wonderful to know that other people feel the same way. This gift and the donations it encourages will help us provide the best experience and resources possible for our student-athletes to grow and to excel as players and great citizens in our community."

With the extra financial support, Ouellette and Julie Chu, the head coach who is currently on maternity leave, can consider increasing the number and value of financial awards. They can also look at funding full-time assistant coaches and travelling to more non-conference competitions and games hosted by NCAA institutions allowing the Stingers to challenge themselves against the best teams in North America.

Giving Tuesday takes place this Dec. 1 and is a global day of creating positive impact. It has become a wide-spread tradition celebrated on the Tuesday following American Thanksgiving.

The team’s FundOne page is up and ready to accept your gifts. You can visit it HERE.

No need to wait until Giving Tuesday. Donations made from now through Dec. 1 will be counted in the campaign. All gifts are eligible for charitable tax receipts.
