About Dave Krache

Dave Krache was a husband, dad, and a brother.

He was someone who was always doing things for others – whether it was volunteering at Must Ministries or volunteering to paint classrooms at St. Joseph’s School in Marietta, he always made helping those less fortunate a priority.

I am his oldest daughter and consider myself to be the luckiest person in the world to have had a dad like him.  He unexpectedly passed away at the age of 57, but I am grateful to have known him at all.  He meant the world to his family and friends.

In keeping his selflessness alive, this Foundation was created to keep kids first.  If there is one thing that nearly everyone has in common, it’s a happy memory from childhood involving sports.  Maybe it was a travel baseball team.  Maybe it was swimming games of “Marco Polo,” or never-ending games of kickball at dusk as the street lights came on.

No kid should ever be told that they can’t play a sport because mom or dad can’t afford it.  It is the Foundation’s goal to one day NEVER have to turn away a kid.

We work with the families and the organizations, leagues, and teams, to see how we can all contribute to the child’s financial ability in playing a sport. Maybe unexpected family medical bills have made registering for baseball less of a priority this year, or a divorce has disrupted the child’s life. Maybe mom was laid off, or dad is having a hard time finding work. That’s where we come in, and that’s where we work to help see that all children can play.

Help us make that vision possible.  Please consider making your tax-deductible donation today.  We are a foundation that helps kids that are in our local communities.  Money stays around your home – you are helping kids in your own neighborhood.

Wouldn’t it be great to make it possible for kids to create those same happy memories you have?
