Making a Difference
The MIELKE Foundation was formed in 2017 with the purpose of providing financial support and programs for children in the foster care system, and to offer support for MIELKE employees and family members, as well as those of our partners, vendors and clients, who may be experiencing hardships based on health or other difficult life circumstances.The MIELKE Foundation is a 501c3 charitable entity funded through a portion of our annual profits. The foundation holds an annual “A Reel Future” fishing tournament to benefit local charities who help the more than 6000 foster children in the Tampa Bay area. In addition, our supporters and volunteers take these children on fishing trips throughout the year so they can experience the great outdoors while fishing and learn independence, teamwork and self-confidence.
We have been privileged to offer support to the following philanthropic organizations and encourage you to consider these organizations in your charitable works.
