Join us in creating positive ripples that extend far beyond the waters.


Do you want to request a donation?

Rods and Reels in Need is dedicated to helping those with financial constraints have the chance to go fishing. If you or someone you know would benefit from our services, please complete the following application. This will be forwarded to us where we will use the information to better help you. It will not be shared.

Please Note:

We have a very limited ability to deliver items and mailing is simply not possible due to cost. In some cases, delivery might be possible, but it is best to be prepared to pick up any donations.

What You Can Do to Help Us

This organization can help others only because of the generous and charitable donations of caring individuals and companies who believe in our mission. To continue our mission, it is important to show how these donations became real life gifts that benefited others. So, please take a moment and share your story on our Facebook Page, donateyourgear4kids. If you can, share lots of fishing pictures and pictures of the gear you received. Let people know how Rods and Reels in Need made a difference! Everything we do is dependent on other people understanding how important our mission is and how something as simple as a fishing rod and reel can make a difference in a person's life.

My thanks in advance,
