Tim Early Foundation
The Tim Early Foundation can use your support to better the DIVE industry in the Midwest. Over the past year we have introduced over 2,000 children to the world of SCUBA. We have supported and funded training for the wounded warriors. The foundation supported and funded 20 children in Lake Geneva who obtained there Open Water certification and Advanced Diver cards. We also help fund the cleanup DIVE and we sure hope to do all this and more in2013.
Your donation is tax deductible, send checks to Tim Early Foundation 16336 South 104th Ave. Orland Park, IL 60467. If you know a school that would be interested in having a professional aquatic presentation, contact, Patrick@ourworldunderwater.com visit us at www.timearlyfoundation.org
Ralph Erickson Educational Foundation
The Ralph Erickson Educational Foundation is in memory of Ralph Erickson, a local Midwest Instructor Trainer, who along with John Cronin started PADI. So far we have funded well over 30 IDC candidates to complete their instructor rating. These underprivileged divers were barely making it and today are making a good living as PADI instructors. Some have moved up into management positions too. It is an honor to be able to bring this to them, but we can only keep up the good work with your support.
You can support the growth of dive industry by having Instructor Classes offered under your name. The Erickson Foundation offers grants to IDC candidates that truly cannot afford to enroll. Scuba manufactures, or any company for that matter, can become a corporate donor and have a full IDC conducted under your company name. To sponsor an IDC or apply for a grant, contact email@example.com. Learn more visit www.reefoundation.org
