Thank you for visiting the Wally Dallenbach Jr. Foundation website.
Wally Dallenbach Jr. Foundation's Mission: Formed in October 2009, the Wally Dallenbach Jr. Foundation's mission
is to give children who have lost a parent the opportunity to learn about the outdoors, their heritage and their
parent's passion through hunting and fishing expeditions.
Led by outdoors experts, including Wally Dallenbach Jr. himself, in some of the world's most beautiful locations, the children
who experience a Foundation program will come away with:
- A respect and love for the outdoors and all it represents.
- Additional understanding of their lost parent and a new respect for the lost parent's outdoors passion.
Wally was doing an appearance at a Bass Pro Shops store when a little boy approached him to ask some questions. In his
discussion with the child, Wally learned that the boy had lost his father, an avid outdoors enthusiast. Attempting to learn more
about his father's life and passion, the boy insisted that he and his mother visit the outdoors store to enjoy a shopping
experience that the boy had once with his father.
Unfortunately, the boy's father passed on before they were able to have a "father-son outdoors adventure."
Wally was moved by the boy's story and since then has heard many more just like it - missed opportunities due to the
untimely passing of a loved one. Instead of merely listening, Wally decided to do his part to assist these kids, as well as their
surviving parent, through the creation of the Wally Dallenbach Jr. Foundation.
A Wally Dallenbach Jr. Foundation program will include travel to an outdoors location for the children and a parent/guardian,
professional instruction and a full immersion into the outdoors.
Every aspect of the program will be paid for by the Foundation, including travel, accommodations and applicable permits -
allowing the child and their surviving parent/guardian free to experience healing from their grief, while learning new skills in
an experience of a lifetime!
