Sponsor and Donator Information
The annual Capital City Fishing Has No Boundaries event requires an extensive amount of planning, coordination, and volunteer work. However, the most important component is people and organizations such as you who are considering financial support and donations. Without funding and supplies it would not be possible to provide for the needs of the disabled individuals and afford them the opportunity to spend a day on Lake Springfield.
Please review the below financial and donation needs of our group and help us however you can. Contact us with any questions or your specific offer/consideration. Fishing Has No Boundaries® is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, all contributions are tax deductible. If you are considering providing goods or services at a reduced cost we are a tax exempt organization with the required tax exemption letter from the IRS.
