Kraken Unity fund

together with Starbucks

The Kraken Unity Fund was created by the Seattle Kraken, One Roof Foundation, and Starbucks with funding from our ownership group, led by David Bonderman and Samantha Holloway. The purpose of the Fund is to honor inspiring individuals who are doing outstanding work to transform lives, enable resiliency, and uplift and unite our community across the Pacific Northwest.

The Hero of the Deep, launched at the beginning of the 2022-23 season during Seattle Kraken home games, will be continued into the upcoming season. One Roof Foundation will work with each Hero to select a nonprofit recipient of a $32,000 Kraken Unity Fund donation.

Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis.
