About Us


The I’ve Got Your Backs Foundation was established in October 2009 in celebration and memory of Isaac Loughrige whose life was cut short due to contracting H1N1 flu virus and acute pneumonia.  Isaac’s life was dedicated to helping others and there are so many touching stories that reflect his heart.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.

Isaac had a passion for helping and working with children, so many of the Foundation programs have youth as the focus. See a list of the ways we are already making a difference.

Our mission is to educate, impact and inspire hope to youth in need by continuing some of the efforts that reflect Isaac’s heart.  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.
