Goals: To develop and promote safety programs for commercial fishermen and to assist fishermen and their families.
Organize two annual events, the Fall Foliage Fiesta and Fishermen's Day, to raise funds for fishermen. Enroll fishermen into a soon to be mandatory Coast Guard approved safety training class and picking up the costs for them.
IFWA manages a bereavement fund to assist families who have lost a fisherman at sea, a fund to assist fishermen who have lost their boat at sea, and a fund to assist fishermen injured on their boat; a scholarship program for graduating seniors who are furthering their education; and provide gift certificates to graduating seniors entering the commercial fishing industry.
