Our Story

With the guidance of our ownership group, the Penguins organization has always been noted for our generous contributions to the surrounding communities. We understand the importance of our fans and the role that we collectively play in the development of the region. Our players, coaches, and front office staff are involved in every aspect of community development, but what makes the programs work is the response to our efforts by our fans.

For our fans, we always strive to be the best in professional sports both on and off the ice. With this in mind, we created the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation — an effort to focus the organization’s wide-ranging charitable and community outreach efforts benefiting the youth in our region.
