Title: Student Angler Support
Post by: KirtH on November 12, 2018, 03:20:40 PM
The purpose of this letter is to ask for your help in supporting a great cause.

Each year in early January, the National Professional Anglers Association hosts an annual conference. At this year’s conference the N.P.A.A. had close to 80 student aged anglers attend their conference. With support from several companies that made donations and additional help from my company, we were able to offset the expense of attending this event for 50 student anglers. These students were asked to attend because of their passion for fishing and their desire to learn more about how fishing could become a career.

We are once again reaching out to companies to help continue to provide an exciting weekend for students interested in the sport of fishing and a potential career within the sportfishing industry. This year, I am hoping to raise enough funds on behalf of the Future Angler Foundation (FAF), a 501(c)3 non-profit that works closely with the N.P.A.A., to send at least 75 young anglers to the 2019 Conference in Minneapolis, MN, on January 4-6.

Any contributions made to the FAF by your company that are earmarked for this program, will go directly to the expense of having the students attend the conference, which include the conference fee, hotel room for 2 days and their annual N.P.A.A membership.

As a 501(c)3 charity, any contributions made to the FAF are 100% tax deductible. As an added bonus for those companies who donate to this program, your logo will be included in the professionally created video that will be distributed to recap the event.

Thank you for your consideration and we will greatly appreciate any contributions you can make to this worthwhile program.
