The Gene Doyle Memorial Foundation

Each year, the foundation awards three Gene Doyle Adventure Scholarships, which help deserving Collier County students to undertake the adventures of their dreams. Click for more information, including 2021 details and deadlines.

Adventure Scholarships are supported by proceeds from the annual Gene Doyle Backcountry Catch and Release Fishing Tournament.

Scholarship

A traditional scholarship may typically be academically based, but The Gene Doyle Adventure Scholarship is designed to be as nontraditional and unique as was Gene himself.

Tournament

The  annual Gene Doyle Fishing Tournament emerged as a perfect fundraising event for the Gene Doyle Adventure Scholarship, where anglers target redfish, snook and trout and compete for 25 top prizes.

Foundation

Simply put, it is the goal of the Gene Doyle Memorial Foundation to keep Gene’s spirit alive by cultivating and supporting kindred spirits who share his love of life and nature.
