Safari Club boosts Hunting Heritage funds by $250,000

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Safari Club International Foundation has announced that it will contribute $250,000 to the Hunting Heritage Partnership (HHP), a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). The donation increases annual grant money available by 50 percent, from $500,000 to $750,000 to address critical issues affecting the future of hunting.

HHP awards annual grants to individual states for effective, new projects aimed at the successful recruitment and retention of hunters. States and local grassroots partners provide funds and/or in-kind services to match the critically needed HHP funds.

"This is one more way to highlight that hunters, including SCI members, give to conservation on many levels," said SCIF President Dennis Anderson. "From their contributions that support the SCIF's global activities, to their local chapter conservation projects, to their support of game and fish agencies through the purchase of licenses and hunting gear. SCI is looking forward to building upon our conservation and education work through this collaboration with NSSF and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies."

Doug Painter, NSSF president, expressed the appreciation of the Foundation: "We are delighted to have SCIF as a major new partner in the Hunting Heritage Partnership and their generosity is taking the program to a whole new level. In just a few years, HHP has gained national recognition as one of the key efforts in the country to increase hunting opportunity and access at the local level. We couldn't be more pleased that SCIF is joining with us to help state wildlife agencies across the country 'open the door' for both today's and tomorrow's hunters."


To date the HHP has awarded more than $2.1 million to state agencies, with positive and tangible results for hunters and conservation. To learn more about HHP and its impact, visit www.nssf.org/hhp.


SCIF leads the way in protecting the freedom to hunt, and in promoting wildlife conservation worldwide. SCI Foundation funds and manages worldwide programs dedicated to wildlife conservation, outdoor education and humanitarian services. For more information, go to www.safariclub.org.
