Please take a moment to note that requests are only available to those that align with The Ike Foundation’s mission and objectives.
Fishing Gear and Grant requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis with four to six weeks advance notice required for delivery of the fishing gear. You will be notified within two weeks of us receiving your request if your Fishing Gear Request has been approved.
The Mission of The Ike Foundation is to get more kids fishing and into the outdoors, especially youth in areas where those activities are not readily available. With that Mission in mind, The Ike Foundation will consider requests for fishing gear from civic and youth organizations and other fishing-based non-profits. Ideally, the group will help educate youth about the sport of fishing, fish health and habitat, and environmental conservation. Recipients should help equip young anglers, particularly in more urban areas.
