WWFHA's mission is to empower girls through the sport of ice hockey
so they can reach their goals and dreams on and off the ice.
Your donation to Western Washington Female Hockey Association (WWFHA) and the Washington Wild teams will help empower girls through the sport they love and help them grow into stronger members of their community.
WWFHA provides girls the opportunity to play on all-girl teams in a traditionally male-dominated sport. WWFHA is a member of USA Hockey, Pacific Northwest Amateur Hockey Association (PNAHA), Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association (PCAHA) and British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association (BC Hockey).
Your donation will go a long way in providing girls the access and opportunity to play hockey and gain valuable experiences on and off the ice. Learn more about our history, mission, vision, philosophy and more in the About section of the website.
Now more than ever, as ice fees and equipment costs rise, your generosity ensures that participation in the Washington Wild remains affordable for all females interested.
WWFHA is organized as a non-profit association and operates under IRS code 501(c)(3), Tax ID 75-3028953. Thus, your contribution may be fully tax-deductible.
Please consider making a donation in one of the ways listed below. We welcome the opportunity to answer questions or offer more information about how your donation will be put to work. Contact us at email@example.com.
As we celebrate our 15th year anniversary, help us reach our $15,000 goal by December 31st by filling the number 15 (#Fillthe15 hashtag) with your donation.
We have already raised over $8,000 with your generous donations but we have $7,000 more to go in 2 weeks! Every dollar helps, and we hope you will consider a small donation. We will continue to update you as we skate toward our goal.
Fifteen years ago WWFHA pledged to grow girls’ hockey in the northwest and give young female athletes the opportunity to learn to skate and play.
As we celebrate our 15th anniversary this year we are even more committed to making ice hockey at every level accessible to females in the community, regardless of their family’s economic means.
With this in mind, we want to introduce you to one of our members who wants to share their story, as it is an example of what hockey can do for young females when they are given a chance to play.
This story is about a girl getting the chance to play hockey through our scholarship program, but it’s also about what she gets from playing girl’s hockey – confidence, fitness and learning new things.
Her mom writes: “My daughter discovered hockey through a Girls’ Try Hockey for Free event hosted by WWFHA. She fell in love with the sport that day and I wanted to immediately get her involved with the sport as much as I could; however, I was worried about the high costs of playing the game.
Now, one year later her excitement for the sport has remained unchanged... as well as her dream to play goalie. After building foundations in WWFHA’s Learn to Play Beginner’s class she joined the WWFHA (new) girls’ house league (WWFHL). Soon she got to try the goalie position and her passion for the sport grew.
My daughter was given the opportunity to play hockey because of a WWFHA scholarship. Since then hockey has provided her with confidence, fitness, and a drive to learn new skills. Her grades have improved and has had a profound impact on her efforts to overcome anxiety.
We cannot express our gratitude for this organization and the game my daughter loves. Without a scholarship this would not have been possible.”
