The Stockton Heat take pride in our commitment to local schools, youth hockey clubs, non-profit organizations, and community outreach initiatives. From the players on the ice to the staff in the Front Office, our team is dedicated to reciprocating the support that Stockton and its surrounding cities have shown us.

The Stockton Heat Foundation (formerly the Stockton Heat Thunder and Lightning Foundation) was formed in 2007 as a non-profit Public Benefit Corporation in the State of California and is organized  and operated exclusively for public and charitable purposes as a 501(c)(3).

The Purpose of the Foundation is to support local charities, sponsor charitable events to raise funds for local charities, sponsoring programs and events, collaborating with local businesses and friends, and entertains requests from charitable organizations and other interested parties that are consistent with its purpose through Grant Procedures and Guidelines.

The Heat work with a wide variety of community partners.  Some of our partners include the Office of Mayor Michael Tubbs, the United Way of San Joaquin County, Stockton Unified Schools, the University of the Pacific, Boys and Girls Clubs, Habitat for Humanity, YMCA Stockton, NORCAL Amateur Hockey Association, the Stockton Symphony, and many more.
