Golden Tate (Wide Receiver)

Golden Tate has shown his passion and dedication to those who have served in the United States Military through the creation of his foundation the Golden Future Foundation. In 2014, Golden and his wife, Elise, created the Golden Future Foundation. This foundation is set up to enhance the lives of American Heroes and their families. Golden Tate also participated in the 2016 NFL-USO Tour.

Their passion for giving back to the military is because Golden's grandfather and both of Elise's grandfathers served in the military. They believe that the true American heroes in our country are often overlooked, and they deserve our utmost respect, appreciation, and resources to get acclimated back into society after serving our country. Through the foundation, Golden and Elise have dedicated their resources, energy and time, to help provide a Golden Future for our true American Heroes. Golden has hosted numerous events to show his support for the military as well as raising funds for his foundation to assist veterans reacclimate to everyday life once returning home from service to our country. From Coat Drives to bowling events, Golden has contributed his time and resources to insuring that members of the military receive the respect, honor, and appreciation they deserve.
