Our Founder

Herbert H. Carnegie

A world-class professional hockey player, Carnegie was prevented from ever playing in the NHL because of his black skin. After being forced to give up his dream, Carnegie became a successful businessman and philanthropist, starting a hockey school called Future Aces. In 1987, Carnegie created the Future Aces Foundation to “inspire and assist youth an adults to become the best they can be as responsible, respectful, peaceful, confident, and caring citizens.” Carnegie was named to the Order of Ontario in 1996 and the Order of Canada in 2003.
