Donations from individuals and organizations, as well as donations from product sales, support the Memorial Fund. Products include the Memorial Fish Whistle, numbered trading cards, memorial pins and medallions. There are no salaries or personal expenses taken out of the Fund. Everyone who works for the Fund is a volunteer.

Our goal is to build the Fund to a financial level that is self-sustaining so that it can continue to touch the lives of children for years to come.

You can help us do that in the following ways:

  1. Purchase products from the vendors listed under fish whistles / trading cards.
    (Until those pages are completed on this site, e-mail Ray or Ronnie for information.)
  2. Send a personal tax-deductible donation to the address listed below.
  3. Suggest that your place of work make a contribution to the Fund.
  4. If you know an individual or an estate administrator who is looking for a way to contribute financially towards the benefit of children, please let them know about this web site.
  5. Help us increase our visibility by talking about us to your family and friends.

Donations may be sent to:
