why donate?

The FKFGA truly gives back to the community. ($12,000 in 2015 alone!) We are a non-profit 501(c) corporation. The Swamp Guides Ball is our largest fundraiser. Proceeds are donated to the Guides Trust Foundation, which helps inshore FL Keys fishing guides in time of need and offers hardship assistance due to Illness or Injury.

Each year the partnership between FKFGA and GTF also award three highly deserved, graduating seniors from the Florida Keys, a scholarship to continue thier education in the Marine Sciences.

Our direct participation on a local and state level, helps to shape and direct our lawmakers in protecting our natural resources and a way of life for those living and visiting here in the Florida Keys.

Please be a part of our community and donate any item or service for our Swamp Guides Ball silent auction. Nothing could be too small (or too large!) All donors will be acknowledged on our website.

Once again.. Thank You! for donating to a very worthy cause.
