Troop Appreciation Foundation

It's All About the Troops!

Midlands Gives brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for Midlands nonprofits during the 18-hour online giving challenge. During Midlands Gives, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist as contributions of just $20 or more are amplified through sponsored prize incentives.

It's All About the Troops!

The Troop Appreciation Foundation is a non-profit organization that thanks our troops for the sacrifices that they have made to our country. We honor them by taking them on an annual Fishing Derby, and as our foundation grows, we plan to add more events for our troops and for the children of our fallen soldiers.  Our fishing events take place on beautiful Lake Murray in South Carolina.  We rely on our sponsors to help make these events possible, and of course, on our local fisherman that volunteer to captain their own boats filled with our wounded warriors.
