Who we are

The I’ve Got Your Backs Foundation was established in October 2009 to celebrate and remember Isaac Loughrige. Isaac’s life was dedicated to helping others, whether he was providing young athletes with sporting equipment, setting up a service that accompanied college girls to their dorms after a fellow student was violated, taking the shoes off his feet for a homeless man, volunteering for inner city missions work, tutoring a young student in math or purchasing birthday gifts for underprivileged kids, Isaac continually showed love and support to those around him.

Consider how you might join with us in making a difference!

Isaac was passionate about helping and working with children, so many of the Foundation’s programs have youth as the focus.

Our mission and dreams can only be accomplished through the generous support of family and friends. We ask you to consider how you can help us with our mission to help those in need.

Essential needs for youth

We work directly with teachers, counselors, and community leaders to provide basic necessities to youth in need.


We provide up to four scholarships annually to graduating seniors who are making a difference in the lives of others.
