Overview

Your donation to Western Washington Female Hockey Association (WWFHA) will provide girls’ hockey players exceptional venues to develop individual and team skills by helping us provide opportunities our to  play with and against female players and teams of equal or superior skill.

2016 #WhenGivingGoWild Campaign

Fourteen years ago, WWFHA pledged to help young females learn to skate and play hockey – to grow the girls’ game in the northwest.

This year we celebrate 14 years including amazing growth in the last 36 months. With our expansion from 3 teams to 7 teams, our players have increased from approximately 42 members to 121 -- almost 300% growth!

Today, we are more committed than ever to bringing the sport of ice hockey, at every level, to young females in the community, but we need your help.

Will you join us as we strive to reach our goal?

Through crowdfunding, our community can reach out to their large circle of friends, family, friends of friends, and fans of the sport to ask everyone for a small amount of support.

We just launched our 2016 campaign – #WhenGivingGoWild – to help us reach our $25,000 goal in 40 days! Four core areas will benefit from your patronage:

  • Keeping WWFHA dues subsidized
  • Funding financial aid packages for players needing assistance
  • Providing more training equipment for the teams
  • Reaching out to the community to interest more girls in playing hockey

With each donation we will move toward reaching our goal!

Please contribute today if you can!
