In early 2004, a group of East High School alumni began conversations on how to keep the spirit of Coach Walt Fiegel alive. As a result, after receiving permission from the Fiegel family, the Walt Fiegel Foundation was established with the intent to continue the legacy of Coach Walt Fiegel through scholarships to high school students and eventually grants to community organizations. The sole purpose of the foundation is to perpetuate the values of Coach Fiegel in his memory, not only in the Siouxland community, but throughout the state of Iowa as well.
The foundation, which is governed by a board of directors has formally established a scholarship fund through the Siouxland Community Foundation. This affiliation will provide appropriate tax benefits for donors to the Walt Fiegel Foundation and will professionally administer the scholarship fund as a part of their established scholarship program. Funds will be raised for the scholarship via an annual golf classic in May and direct mail donations from individuals and businesses.
