We are thrilled to continue our partnership with lifelong philanthropist Gordon Hoffman. Gordon's annual support of our golf tournament began in 2010 and has since raised over $1,000,000 to support programs and services benefitting individuals and families in Calgary affected by Learning Disabilities and ADHD.
While Gordon's official career is as a lawyer, and as a co-founder of Hoffman-Dorchik law firm, those who know him may say that his true calling is as a connector of people, and a man who cares deeply about community. Year after year Gordon brings his energy, enthusiasm, network and generous spirit to this tournament. We are not alone in our admiration for Gordon and his work.
Gordon was appointed to the King's Counsel in 2000, and won the Distinguished Service Award from the Law Society of Alberta the same year, he won the Governors General of Canada Award in 2014, became a member of the Order of Canada in 2019, received of the Generosity of Spirit Lifetime Achievement Award in 2021, and was honoured with the Queens Platinum Jubilee Medal in 2023 both provincially and federally. He has been recognized countless times for his contributions to non-profits; particularly Project Warmth, Operation Kickstart and the Alberta Champions Society.
Gordon has been chairman, co-chairman, director and sometimes founder of nearly 100 charitable and community organizations supporting a broad spectrum of people.
We share Gordons belief that "Every gift, no matter how small, is important."
Foothills Academy Society is a Registered Charity that has been providing programs and services to help children and families affected by Learning Disabilities reach their potential since 1979. The generosity of donors and supporters has allowed us to offer a bursary program that has ensured that no one is turned away due to their financial circumstances.
