Giving back to the community through children's charities
~ Helping kids reach their goal ~
The Dave Andreychuk Foundation
Welcome to the Dave Andreychuk Foundation, Inc. website!
I am glad to have the opportunity to share with you what this foundation is about and why I felt it was important to start this organization.
After retiring from the National Hockey League in 2007, I decided to start the Dave Andreychuk Foundation to give back to the communities that are very important to my family and I.
Although I refer to the Foundation as one entity, there are actually two. One is based in Canada and one in the United States. Having two Foundations allows me to raise funds for youth hockey in my home town of Hamilton, Ontario and for children and families in need in the Tampa, Florida area. Please take moment to browse through the website and get familiar with the charities I support. I hope you will be able to join me and help a child reach their goal! The Dave Andreychuk Foundation in the United States supports only charities based in the United States. The majority of funds are directed to charities that benefit children and families in need.

The Dave Andreychuk Foundation was a proud sponsor of this year's Tampa Police Benevolent Association's 5th annual Memorial Golf Tournament. The PBA was formed in 2009 with funds going specifically to help the loved ones of officers lost in the line of duty. The tournament was held at the Hunter's Green Country Club.
The Dave Andreychuk Foundation with the help of the Lightning Foundation annually gives 2 collage scholarships to senior high school hockey players in the Tampa bay region. This our 4th year. This years winners of $2500 are Kyle Rosenbach (Wiregrass High School/ St. Leo University) and Austin Teall (East Lake High School/Undecided University/ currently trying out with multiply USHL teams).

2014 Dave Andreychuk Foundation Scholarship Recipients
Congratulations to Ian Roach and Joseph Pergolizzi, two Tampa area high school senior hockey players, who were honored at the Tampa Bay Lightning game on March 13, 2014 by the Dave Andreychuk Foundation and the Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation. Both were chosen as recipients of the Dave Andreychuck Scholarship for 2014! Roach and Pergolizzi were among local high school seniors who were introduced to the fans at the game during the second intermission.
"With your on ice dedication, leadership to the game of hockey and your off ice commitment to make the Tampa Bay area a better place to live, you both are very deserving of the scholarship." Dave shared with Ian and Joseph.
