The David Phillips Foundation honors and preserves the memory of David Phillips, devoted husband to Allison, proud father to Laney, Sally, Ellie, Lucy, and Liam, Ironman & “IronDaddy,” ultra-marathoner, youth sports coach, philanthropist, community leader, and neighbor and friend to all.

Mission & Vision

While inspiring, encouraging, and supporting young athletes, the David Phillips Foundation strives to share Coach David’s kind, gentle, and joyful spirit, and dedication to serving others.

The David Phillips Foundation improves the lives of children and their families, strengthens neighborhood ties, and builds community, through recreation, sports, and opportunities to “play.” Further, we work to support and uplift children and families who have lost a parent, by providing resources, and making connections with additional support providers in their communities.

Board of Directors

DPF is run by a group of volunteers who are dedicated to providing a path forward for families who have lost a parent.
