About The Ike Foundation:
Established in 2014, The Ike Foundation is an IRS registered 501(c)3 nonprofit
foundation focused on promoting the sport of fishing to youths and developing their appreciation of the outdoors and America’s natural resources. Each year, the Foundation donates thousands of rods, reels, tackle boxes, and lures to kids.
It also assists civic organizations, youth fishing organizations, and other charitable organizations in sponsoring events that promote fishing to both inner city and rural youth. The events teach young people about the sport of fishing, the ecology of the outdoors, and the responsibility each person has to maintain our planet’s natural resources.
In April, the Foundation awards a scholarship to five high school anglers headed to college. In May, it hosts Ike’s Hook ‘Em Early Kids Fishing Tournament and, in July, it hosts the 2nd Annual Ike Celebrity Pro-Am Tournament & Benefit Dinner. See TheIkeFoundation.org for details about the upcoming events.
