Project Description


Women’s hockey and medicine. Joan Snyder has made a difference in both.
Joan grew up watching her mother play, and put an exclamation point on her own lifelong passion with a donation of $2 million to WinSport to support women’s hockey, on top of a $500,000 gift to the University of Calgary Dinos’ women’s hockey program, both in 2011.
In 2008, she donated $9 million to the University of Calgary to fund the Snyder Institute of Chronic Diseases in the faculty of Medicine.
