Here’s How You Can Honor Toby Keith

Additionally, Toby Keith’s family shared how fans can honor him after his passing. In lieu of flowers, the family says fans can make donations to The Toby Keith Foundation in Keith’s memory.

The Toby Keith Foundation was established in 2006. He served as the organization’s President, while his wife, Tricia, serves as the Vice President.

The foundation supports the OK Kids Korral, which opened in 2014. The OK Kids Korral is a cost-free place for pediatric cancer patients and their families to stay while the child is undergoing cancer treatments. The Korral is located in Keith’s home state of Oklahoma.

The Korral now hosts hundreds of families each year.

Last year (2023) Keith’s golf classic fundraiser raised a record-breaking amount of money for The Toby Keith Foundation. $1.8 million, to be precise.
