The Coach Tate Foundation (CTF) is a registered 501 (c)3 non-profit organization established in 2010 in
memory of Johnny “Coach” Tate, who passed away on April 28, 2010. Coach Tate was passionate about coaching, and it showed in the way he touched the lives of hundreds of kids and parents throughout his lifetime. To immortalize the passion and commitment Coach Tate showed for children and young adults in Burke and surrounding counties, Coach Tate’s oldest daughter Phrantceena Halres established the Coach Tate Foundation. The mission of the Coach Tate Foundation is to provide scholarships, leadership development, and character-building for student-athletes in Burke and surrounding counties.
