The Hockey Hispana Fund was started in 2021 through a generous gift from The Dawson Family. The goal of the Hockey Hispana Fund is to help make the sport of hockey more inclusive for Latina hockey players in Colorado.
The fund provides grants to 8U and 10 female hockey players who are of Hispanic heritage, are residents of Colorado and registered with a USA Hockey sanctioned association. Awards specific to this fund will be awarded to the player's association to be applied to costs associated with the player's registration fees and membership fees.
Two Latina hockey players will receive grant awards from the Hockey Hispana Fund in the amount of $2,500 for registration fees and hockey equipment in September 2022.
Grant awards for the Hockey Hispana Fund will be used for individual player registration and membership fees, along with funds for hockey equipment. All grant awards will be paid directly to the hockey association and not to the individual receiving the grant award. Individuals applying for the grant must be USA Hockey registered and the deadline to apply each year is June 1. For questions, or if you would like to donate to the Hockey Hispana Fund, please contact Sheila May at 719-538-1107 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
