Established in 2014, The Ike Foundation is an IRS registered 501(c)3, nonprofit foundation focused on promoting the sport of fishing to America's youth and developing their appreciation of the outdoors and our country's natural resources. Each year, thousands of rods, reels, tackle boxes, and lures are donated to kids. The Ike Foundation also assists civic organizations, youth fishing organizations, and other charitable organizations in sponsoring events and functions which promote fishing to both inner city and rural youth. These events and functions teach young people about the sport of fishing, the ecology of the outdoors, and the responsibility each person has in order to maintain our planet's natural resources. ‘Ike's first-annual celebrity bass tournament' fundraiser was held in Philadelphia during August, 2016. In January, 2017, The Ike Foundation hosted a beef and beer fundraiser dinner for a new scholarship program for graduating high school seniors. Proceeds from the sold out dinner created five $1500 scholarship awards for the essay contest winners.
