The Mike Tice Foundation partners with charitable organizations, events and causes that support the youth in our local community and nationally. Organizations we partner with in Washington are the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound and Thurston County. In Nevada we partner with the Boys & Girls Club of Western Nevada. Our charitable partner in Minnesota is the Twin Cities Fire Department and their Operation Warm which provides winter coats to kids. We also support and donate to multiple scholarship programs in New York and Washington and our support of youth sports programs is a given for us. With the support and dedication of our volunteers, corporate partners and the celebrities that lend us their valuable time we believe we can help shape the lives of our country’s youth in a positive and impactful way. Join us help make a difference and donate.
It was 12 years ago when we organized a two day charity golf event at the Carson Valley Inn in Minden, NV. The participants in that event in 2011 were my family and friends from New York, Minnesota, Seattle and across the country. We raised about $25,000 and we decided the money would go to the Boys & Girls Club of Western Nevada Carson Valley Branch to help with raising funds for a new clubhouse for "the kids". Over this period of 12 years we have raised over $1.4 million for the Carson Valley B&G Club.
In 2019 we started The Mike Tice Foundation and made a commitment to raise money for other charitable organizations, events and causes. Thanks to our friends, sponsors and our celebrities in 2021 we donated over $280,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs in Nevada and Washington. Our first Celebrity Golf Event at the Clearwater Casino Resort in Squamish, WA was a huge success.
We were able to donate $140,000 to the South Puget Sound and the Thurston County Boys & Girls Clubs. We are pleased to have made it possible for any family that wants to utilize the programs offered at the B&G North Mason Teen Center to do so with $0 cost to them.
We have made it possible through our partnership with the Thurston County B&G Club to scholarship membership fees to the over 80 children experiencing homelessness in the Thurston County B&G Club system. At $0 cost to the family this sponsorship includes after school programming, out of school camp and summer camp.
We continue with our goal of providing charity, hope and love to the many great organizations and causes that help shape our nation's youth.
