We are pleased to announce the launch of The Dave Goode Memorial Foundation (https://skifordave.com).
The foundation will honor Dave's memory and inspire the next generation of young water skiers, snow skiers and innovators by providing financial support for their passions, on and off the water and snow.
"Dave found joy in helping other people succeed, whether it was by offering them words of encouragement, or by providing them with equipment that helped them achieve new heights," said Dawn Goode, Dave's wife and executive director of the foundation. "He would be very happy to know that this foundation will ensure that his spirit of giving and achievement will continue to live on."
Donations to the non-profit foundation are tax deductible and will be used to fund grants awarded through a process with clear objectives, timeframes and amounts that will be outlined in the future on the foundation's website, SkiForDave.com.
Tragically, Dave died Jan. 15th while taking part in one of his many passions, piloting his airplane. Through his numerous technological advancements in both water skiing and snow skiing, and financial support of countless events and athletes in both sports, Dave touched the lives of thousands of people by helping them, and the sports they love, push the limits of performance.
A quick friend and generous mentor, Dave will be remembered for his kindness and endless support to many.
