National Fishing in Schools Program
“Fishing in Schools” is a nationwide program that delivers outdoor education in schools using fishing as the method of curriculum delivery. It is an “in school” program that is usually taught by PE teachers in Elementary Schools (grades K-5), Middle Schools (grades 6-8) and High Schools (grades 9-12). There is also a college/university program.
National Fishing in Schools Program (NFSP) is the registered trade name of The Fishing Education Foundation (FEF), a 501 (c) (3) non profit corporation. FEF was formed to encourage support from anyone interested in helping young students learn about the lifetime rewards of fishing while instilling in them a respect and understanding for our natural resources.
Any contributions made to this non-profit corporation are tax deductible. 100% of the donations go toward getting "Fishing in Schools" installed in our public and private schools.
A Lifetime Investment
One rather unique benefit of your contribution is that is it is a “lifetime” gift. For example, let’s say you or your company becomes the benefactor of a school by contributing as an "Adopt A School” sponsor. Your $3500 tax-deductible donation to the Fishing Education Foundation supports “Fishing in Schools” for the life of the program in that school.
So although it’s a one-time expenditure, your investment continues to work as each new class of students participates in the program. Hundreds to tens of thousands of youth are benefitted as the program goes on year after year. (We require a 3 year minimum commitment from participating schools.)
