Welcome to Our Foundation's Website
The Sgt. Thomas M. Gilbert Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that exists to promote youth appreciation and education of the outdoors. This is a new site and is growing every day. Please check back regularly for our latest updates.
Tom was the type to take on challenges with both enthusiasm and appreciation. He enjoyed working with children and had a great love for the outdoors. As Tom traveled the world, he was able to enjoy both of these. He was the type of person that when he was around children he would take them under his wing. Some of his best memories were of playing soccer with the children in Djibouti Africa when he was stationed there or being around the many kids he met during his time in Iraq.
In his honor, this foundation was created to combine two of his greatest joys and we will work hard to create something he would be proud of.
FISHING DAY 2014
Eighth Annual Kids Fishing Day
Thank you to all of our volunteers and all of our sponsors for making this year's record-setting event the biggest ever! We truly couldn't do it without the generosity of your time and donations. With over 285 kids present, the perfect weather helped make this our most well attended event!
Although this year we learned why they call it "Fishing" and not "Catching", we know that the new poles that each child received will help them grow up to become the best of anglers...just like Sgt. Tommy.
Enjoy the summer and remember to "Take it Outside"!
