Year-end giving campaign raises funds for conservation through hunters' love of hunting dogs

From Pheasants Forever


What's your favorite bird dog breed? Pheasants Forever's second annual "Bird Dogs for Habitat" campaign challenges upland hunters to cast a vote and make a donation on behalf of their favorite dog. All tax-deductible donations support Pheasants Forever's wildlife habitat conservation mission - and the places where bird dogs love to hunt.

Through online credit card payments, Pheasants Forever will accept contributions placed in support of 45 different breeds of bird dogs. Each $1 donated is equal to one vote for that bird dog breed. In other words, a $100 donation is equal to 100 votes for a particular bird dog breed. U.S. Bank and its Pheasants Forever Visa Card program have started the donations off with a $5,000 contribution, which will be evenly distributed among all breeds.

UPDATE 12/20/11: Pheasants Forever announced Lincoln Financial Network has put forth a $25,000 grant to the nonprofit Bird Dogs for Habitat campaign. Lincoln Financial Network (LFN) will match, dollar for dollar up to a total of $25,000, individual contributions to Pheasants Forever's year-end fundraising effort, all of which will directly support the conservation mission.


Last year's first-ever Bird Dogs for Habitat campaign raised more than $48,000, which all directly supported Pheasants Forever's wildlife habitat efforts. That first campaign included just 25 breeds for people to vote and donate on behalf. That number has expanded to 45 breeds to represent virtually all sporting dog owners. Last year's winning breed was the Vizsla, which accrued $5,877 in contributions. As an added incentive to this year's campaign, all Pheasants Forever Dog Life Memberships sold at $500 each during December will also count toward that breed's vote total.

To donate, click on your favorite bird dog breed listed on the PF site and make a donation in the amount you so desire. Visit the site after you make your donation to see your tax-deductible contribution added to your breed.
