Bigfish Foundation (Nonprofit 501c3)
Bigfish Foundation is a nonprofit entity of Bigfish Screenprinting.
The Bigfish Foundation was born out of the tragedy that happened just outside of Springfield, MO. On May 22, 2011 in Joplin, MO an EF5-rated tornado ripped through the town in the late afternoon. Overall, the tornado killed 161 people (with an additional four indirect deaths), injured some 1,150 others, and caused damages amounting to a total of $2.8 billion. The next day at Bigfish, we had a meeting to see how we could help. We thought how could we even help, we are just a small company.
With the support of our community behind us and the calling of Vicki (owner), we dove into how can we help mode. Over $100,000 later, we knew that we made the right decision to create our nonprofit side.
