Our Mission

The Mark Messier Foundation was created by National Hockey League legend Mark Messier to deliver on his passion to support, inspire, and empower those in need through sports, healthy living, and education.

The Foundation's mission is to assist programs that deliver both quantifiable and qualitative benefits that make a positive difference. The Foundation seeks outcomes in which every individual who accesses these programs becomes healthier, better educated, more confident, and more aware of the opportunities the world has to offer.

The Foundation itself does not provide any programs or services but, instead, raises funds to contribute to appropriate organizations. For more information about the programs we support, use the link at the top of the page.
