Note from the
foundation
The Clint Deimeke Outdoor Foundation, Inc. would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of the wonderful people, organizations, communities, and businesses whom have so generously supported our Foundation. Our goal is to promote and advance outdoor activities for our youth and young adults.
In May 2017, the foundation sponsored a slow pitch, sand volleyball and horseshoe tournament. The proceeds from the event, as well as the memorials that were contributed, went to establishing the first Clint Deimeke Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was awarded to Avery Carline in 2017. The annual scholarship will be awarded at graduation in May 2018.
The Clint Deimeke Outdoor Foundation Memorial trap shoot took place in October of 2017. The trap shoot was hosted by the Community R-6 FFA Chapter. The vast majority of shooters were still in high school.
In November, we held a gun raffle and the winner was a young lady from Jefferson City. We were thrilled to be a part of her first gun buying experience. Also in November, the foundation sponsored a young adult to participate in Missouri’s deer hunting season. He earned his hunter safety card, was outfitted, guided and harvested a nice button buck. We were proud to be a part of an experience that he said “I would never forget”.
The donations and contributions go into the Clint Deimeke Outdoor Foundation, Inc., which is a non-for-profit, registered with the State of Missouri. The foundation funds the scholarship and promotes the activities previously mentioned. The foundation is presided over by a nine member board of directors.
