The Kevin Popke Foundation has two major lines of effort: support to local Veteran based charities and to the Brandon High School wrestling team. The focus reflects its namesake’s priorities: supporting our Nation’s Veterans and developing young men through wrestling.
The Foundation provides grants each year to select charities that focus on support to our Nation’s Veterans. In 2019, these grants provided funds to help homeless and paralyzed Veterans, as well as financial support to Special Operations families in crisis.
The Foundation supports Brandon High School’s team via grants, equipment purchases, and scholarships. It provides assistance to current and developing team members, and underprivileged wrestlers to attend out of area tournaments, including registration fees, travel expenses, and per diem costs.
