Daryl K. “Doc” Seaman is a Canadian icon, pioneer and philanthropist. On the list of his many achievements, Doc was an original owner of the Calgary Flames and was instrumental in bringing them to Calgary in 1980.
Doc’s philanthropic contributions ranged from supporting medical education to funding entrepreneurial initiatives and his love for ranching, hockey, sports and community continues to live on through a fund established in his name.
The Daryl K. Seaman Canadian Hockey Fund is a national program administered by the Calgary Foundation to support:
- All aspects of amateur ice hockey in Canada on a nation-wide basis;
- Registered Canadian amateur athletic associations; and
- Other general charitable purposes as the Board of Directors of the Calgary Foundation shall determine.
In addition to amateur ice hockey, the Calgary Foundation is accepting proposals of interest for new initiatives that encourage young people to learn about, enjoy and play amateur sport of all kinds, as well as those that increase equal access and promote participation in community-based amateur sport.
