The Kas Ioane Foundation is a charitable nonprofit organization. It was established to continue the legacy of Ioane, who spent nearly four decades as an educator and coach in Billings Public Schools, in the wake of being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

Ioane is the father of Montana State hall of famer Kane Ioane and his brother, Kip, who was a men's basketball coach at NCAA Division III Willamette (Ore.) for 22 years, including 14 as head coach.

The KIF conducted a football coaching seminar in February in Billings, with first-year Nevada coach Jeff Choate serving as the keynote speaker.
