NFL wide receiver Mike Evans and his wife, Ashli, started the foundation in 2017 to make a difference in the lives of children in need, and families impacted by domestic violence.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, Mike doubled the amount awarded through the Mike Evans Family Foundation College Scholarship Program this year. 13 hard-working students received $10,000 each to put toward their college tuition.
Join us on December 16 at AMF University Lanes in Tampa for the 4th Annual Mike Evans Bowling Night! Proceeds help support our Catch for Christmas program, which provides holiday gifts to local kids and families.
In Spring, we open applications to our annual college scholarship program to benefit hard-working, resilient students from across the country. The final recipients participate in a celebratory Zoom call with Mike and Ashli! Mike often funds additional scholarships throughout the year to help even more young adults pursue their education and career goals.
Catch for Kids
For every yard Mike gains and every touchdown he scores, he is making an even bigger difference off the field. Our Catch for Kids campaign ties Mike’s on-field production to his mission to help others. At the end of the NFL season, we donate one item for every yard and 13 items for every touchdown he earned to community organizations.

Through the foundation’s annual Catch for Christmas program, they work to create unforgettable holiday experiences for Tampa Bay kids. This program is so special to Mike and Ashli because they love seeing the kids’ smiles and excitement!
