Boot Camp for New Dads Receives Grant from Pacific Life Foundation

IRVINE, Calif. — The Pacific Life Foundation of the Pacific Life Insurance Company recently bestowed a grant upon Boot Camp for New Dads , a non-profit orientation program for fathers-to-be, operating in more than 260 hospitals, clinics, schools and churches around the country.

The grant will be used to develop tools for outreach and marketing to dads-to-be in communities across the U.S.

“We’d like to thank the Pacific Life Foundation for their generous donation and their commitment to helping men ‘hit the ground crawling’ in their new role as fathers,” said Greg Bishop, founder and head coach of Boot Camp for New Dads. Research has shown that if men get involved early, they are more likely to stay engaged with their kids and continue to be a positive force in their children’s lives.

The Pacific Life Insurance Company, which was founded in 1868, provides life insurance products, annuities, and mutual funds, and offers a variety of investment products and services to individuals, businesses, and pension plans. The company’s charitable giving is distributed through the Pacific Life Foundation based in Newport Beach, Calif.

Celebrating its 16th year, Boot Camp for New Dads is nationally acclaimed as the “Best Practice” for preparing men to be fathers and has been named a U.S. Navy Model Program. With a mission “to help assure every child a father they can count on, no matter what”, Boot Camp for New Dads has prepared more than 160,000 men for fatherhood over the years.

The National Center for Health Statistics reports that 1.5 million men become new dads each year. As a result, it's important that new dads understand and are prepared for the critical roles they will play in their children's lives. This grant will help impact many lives in a positive way.
