The Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club is very active in fulfilling donation requests from charitable and non-profit organizations to assist with their fundraising efforts. Every year the Tiger-Cats help raise thousands of dollars for charities and benefits by donating items for auction.
While the Tiger-Cats recognize a commitment to charitable concerns, the volume of donation requests we receive on an annual basis has required us to limit the amount of donation requests we fulfill.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats do not provide a monetary value for any items provided.
Which organizations do we support?
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club supports registered and not-for-profit groups throughout Hamilton,the Golden Horseshoe and Southern Ontario. While attention is given in support of Play Action Minor football and health/wellness programs, other initiatives will be considered. Please note: we are unable to accommodate requests for families or individuals.
Although our policies allow us to be generous with our donations, submitting a request does not guarantee your organization will receive a donation. In an attempt to help the greatest number of people, The Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club will only provide donated items once per year to organizations selected.
What items are offered?
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats often provide tickets to Tiger-Cats home games as well as Hamilton Tiger-Cats branded merchandise which include, but are not limited to, ball caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys and footballs. Please note we are unable to guarantee that every item donated will be autographed. Items donated are determined at the discretion of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club.
Please note due to the limited availability of seats at Tiger-Cats home games, game tickets for specific dates may not be available for donation purposes.
