I have been helping with this organization from day one by donating money and time. I know that it has a positive impact on the kids and the parents. I love seeing the kids faces as they catch their first fish and let me tell you these are BIG fish. The last time I helped was 2012 when Get Kids Fishing Foundation partnered with CURE Childhood Cancer, I could just see the excitement and joy on these kids and parents faces and that is what makes this so rewarding. Dave Dayton, Founder and CEO is truly dedicated to making this a top notch Non Profit Organization. I look forward to many years of service for this organization. Lets see what 2013 has in store for our kids.

What a great organization!! I have a passion for fishing and enjoy sharing my passion even more. Who better to share it with than kids...our future? I first volunteered my boat and time back in September of this year and found the trips extremely rewarding. Dave Dayton, Founder and Chairman, is dedicated to making the fishing trips memorable and his number one goal is making sure we have what we need to make it happen. This is an organization I will definitely be volunteering my time to in the future!

This organization is top notch and really cares about our next generation of fishing people. They teach each child, and their families, the basics of fishing and the knowledge to sustain our natural resources. The Get Kids Fishing Foundation is a 100% volunteer based organization with no salaries or administration fees. Every dime donated to this group goes the the support of their mission and we approve of everything they stand for. Our nation needs more groups like this one that reaches out for our youth and keeps them out of trouble. Great job Get Kids Fishing Foundation...keep up the good work!
