On April 15, 2016, the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and the George H.W. Bush Vamos A Pescar™ Fund, along with President Bush, Bass Pro Shops and representatives from the states of Texas and Florida, announced the very first grant donations to organizations bringing conservation, education and fishing and boating experiences to Hispanic families.
A total of $50,000 in grants were awarded to organizations in Texas and Florida during a ceremony at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, TX. The mission of the Education Fund is to bring hands-on fishing and boating experiences, along with conservation activities, to Hispanic families across the United States. This event announces the first grants made in furtherance of this mission. To celebrate the announcement, local families and members of the community participated in fishing activities and a fun-filled fish fry at the event.
