The Hobey Baker Memorial Award Foundation is 501(c)3 non-profit corporation committed to the advancement of athletic achievement, character, and sportsmanship in college and high school hockey. It was established in 1991 and is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Foundation annually recognizes college hockey's most outstanding player through the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, named for the early twentieth century athlete widely regarded to be the first great American hockey player. Established in 1981, the award's unique criteria include strength of character, sportsmanship, and academic achievement as well as excellence on the ice—the characteristics embodied by Hobey Baker in his lifetime. The Hobey Baker Memorial Award is college hockey's most prestigious award.
Donations like yours help make an insurmountable difference for kids of all ages as they start to understand the true meaning of sportsmanship. Not to mention, the role model that the coveted Division I college hockey recipient plays in their lives as they follow and look up to them. Since we are run by volunteers with no hidden administrative fees, your tax-deductible donation is invaluable to the Hobey Baker Memorial Award and 100% goes directly to furnish award plaques and promotional material as well as to support the continual development of youth hockey education programs.
