Our Goals

How YOU Can Make a Difference

Endowments: Historically one of the largest funding sources for 'local interest', non-profit groups; the Elton Goodwin Memorial Foundation proactively seeks partnerships with local Attorneys, CPA's, and Estate Planners whose clients are looking to make a tax free contribution that will someday be used to benefit their own legacy, in their own community. As a 501c3 non profit public charity, endowments, gifts, or bequests of real estate or life insurance proceeds may be given at anytime, and are 100% tax deductible. If you are inter-ested in learning more about this option, please contact your CPA or Estate Planner.

Corporate Sponsorships: In the short time the Foundation has been around, we have developed a large and loyal following in Port Orchard, and the Kitsap County Communities. Our supporters recognize that we are an organization with substance, resources, and the sustainability to affect positive change for generations of our communities children. Our events are attended by thousands of community members, business owners and civic leaders each year; and we can offer tremendous visibility for your business or non-profit organiza-tion through our advertising and cross-promotional platforms. Businesses have the option of sponsoring any, or all of our events each year; all which offer low cost, high impact advertising solutions that are sure to reach your customers! Please contact us for advertising rates and sponsorship details.

Donations of Auction or Raffle items: The Foundation has been blessed to have been gifted everything from sports memorabilia, to fishing charters...and we welcome them all! All of it bound for our Fall Dinner & Auc-tion, this is a fantastic way for business owners, and private donors to give back to the community!

A great portion of Elton's legacy is rooted in his ability to connect with, and create opportunities for children of all ages. Whether on the baseball field, in the classroom, or in the community, Elton had a rare gift and a driving passion for helping all kids, privileged or challenged. In managing his Foundation we have been tasked with preserving his legacy for the children of tomorrow, and let me tell you "he left some mighty big cleats to fill!"

As our tagline states, our goal is to empower children of the South Kitsap community through the creation of scholastic and athletic opportunities. Whether through our many scholarship awards, our passionate support of youth athletics, or our dedicated commitment to improving student athletic facilities at South Kitsap High School; 100% of the funds we raise go towards making South Kitsap a stronger community.

As a 501c3 and 509a2 Non Profit, Public Charity the Foundation seeks financing from a broad range of funding sources including grants, endowments, and corporate sponsorships; however our strongest donor base is right here at home. The majority of our funds each year are raised through our EG29 Events calendar, and through strategic partnerships with local businesses, civic organizations and community leaders; all who want to see a 'stronger South Kitsap'! We recognize the importance of partnership alliances as a tool to broaden our impact in the community, and we work closely with representatives from other Foundations, youth sports programs, and civic organizations; and we have engaged in coordinated efforts with the South Kitsap School District to improve student athletic facilities at South Kitsap High School, and elsewhere in our com-munity.

This Foundation shares deeply in Elto's commitment to the children of our community, and the diagram below illustrates not only the breadth of our commitment to these goals, but allows transparency with our donor base, permitting you to see exactly how your donations are being used to create impactful opportunities for our children.

Corporate Sponsors & Partners


Whether through a one time donation of $300, or an annual commitment of $1000 (annual sponsorship), the Elton Goodwin Foundation recognizes those individuals and businesses whose contributions exceed our expectations. You have our deepest of gratitude for helping us preserve Elton's legacy; and for making South Kitsap and the Port Orchard community a better place to live and raise our children. In-kind contributions of these levels are also recognized. 

"Love Ya Man"!
