In 2013, the Independence Bowl Foundation established the Charitable Donation Program, which will provide money to four area non-profit organizations each year.

PB149701HThe Independence Bowl Foundation will annually take $1 from each ticket sold to the bowl game – including team allotments – and will split that money up equally and distribute it to the four charitable organizations that have been selected for that year.

The program is designed to enhance efforts by local non-profit organizations to fill identifiable areas of need within the community.

In the program’s inaugural year, two national charitable organizations were pre-selected to be recipients by the Independence Bowl Foundation: Wounded Warrior Project® and College Football Assistance Fund.


The Duck Commander Independence Bowl is offering support in the community through funding of select projects that benefit the community, provide opportunities for local involvement and provide recognition of the Duck Commander Independence Bowl.

Awards will be distributed by May 31, 2015. Recipients of funding will be required to file a follow-up report by September 1, 2015, providing information on the accomplishments of the project, how the funds were spent, how the Duck Commander Independence Bowl was involved and was recognized.

Minimum guaranteed amount to be awarded per group: $5,000 (The final amount will be based on total tickets sales for the 2014 Duck Commander Independence Bowl – as $1 from each ticket sold goes toward the award.
