Building an AJHL franchise from scratch is no small feat and the Blackfalds Bulldogs have added an element that very few junior hockey teams across Canada have. In April 2021, the Bulldogs Foundation was born. With the vision of owners Doug Quinn and Jodie Schreiner, the Bulldogs Foundation’s mandate is to have a positive impact on the Blackfalds and Central Alberta communities. The Bulldogs Foundation is looking forward to supporting various community partners – from health and wellness, education, grassroots youth sport, animals, and finally supporting our own Bulldogs Scholarship Fund. With the Bulldogs Scholarship Fund, we want to give back to the players who are invested in our community. The goals outlined above will be achieved through our great donor partners, fundraising events including a team Fashion Show and Golf Tournament, player & staff volunteer hours, among many other community events throughout the season. The Foundation has come a long way in year one and we look to continue supporting our community, being a teammate, and creating a Bulldogs pawprint in the Central Alberta Community.
