Tax ID #27-4117424


At BARWIS, we have a deep desire to utilize our resources and relationships to help those in need in the most practical, tangible ways possible. The Athletic Angels Foundation was born from this desire, started years ago by Mike Barwis in his days as a collegiate coach when he would develop relationships with impoverished kids who lived near the stadium.

He would connect them with his athletes, ensure they received gifts and food during the holiday season, and provide ways for them to experience joy and mentorship with high-profile role models. Today, Athletic Angels not only continues these traditions but also has ongoing relationships with foster-care facilities, hosts weekly training sessions and exciting large-scale events for youth, sponsors sport-training camps, and is working with the federal government to expand nationally to create even more opportunities to change the lives of youth in need.


Methodist Children's Home Society helps hundreds of abused and neglected children each year by providing safe havens, creating forever families, and raising responsible young men.
