Freedom Fishing Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is supported by volunteers and donations. We can’t take deserving vets fishing without the support of community members and businesses. If you would like to help improve the lives of veterans and their families, please consider donating.


The very best fish tales.



We can’t promise you’ll catch a trophy fish, but we can promise we’ll do everything we can to have a good time. We love seeing smiles like this one.

Lasting memories.

Sometimes the simplest of moments makes for a lasting memory. A calm bay and a big bass don’t hurt either. We feel fortunate to help create special memories.

A well-deserved break.

We know you’re used to being strong and helping other people. You deserve a break. You’ve earned it. Let us take care of you for a bit!

Get out on the water and out of your head.

A change of scenery can do wonders and there is some magic found in nature. It reminds us how beautiful things can be and puts things into perspective.

Reconnect with the good.

There is power in coming together and sharing in an experience with people who understand where you’ve been.

Restoring hope for the future.

One of our favorite things is when a vet brings a child to fish with them. Watching them connect while spending time together is priceless.

It is never too late.

Some of the vets we help have felt alone and suffered for far too long. It is never too late to reach out. It is never too late to take a step toward a happier, healthier tomorrow.

To make a financial donation (either one-time or scheduled on a regular basis) that will go directing toward helping vets and their families get outside and get connected. Remember to ask your employer is they match donations!



Perhaps it is our military background, but we take this very seriously. We are very disciplined in how we spend your donations. As a result, we’ve earned the Gold Transparency award from GuideStar. This means you can feel good about our non-profit status and the way your money will be put to good use.
