Who We Are
For our partners and fellow wildlife enthusiasts, Wyoming Wildlife – The Foundation (now a component fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation) is a charitable, non-advocacy organization dedicated to conservation education and the funding and management of projects that benefit Wyoming wildlife. Since the year 2000, we have developed many trusted partnerships that create the opportunity for you to contribute and bring projects to life. Your contributions will improve Wyoming’s greatest resource – its fish and wildlife – for the benefit of our kids and grandkids.
Wyoming Wildlife –The Foundation (WW-TF) measures its success not by the dollars raised, but by the “on-the-ground” projects we fund. WW-TF prides itself on funding worthy wildlife and habitat improvement projects that produce an immediate impact and preserve and perpetuate our resources for the enjoyment of future generations.
Since 2001, WW-TF has generated millions of dollars for the benefit of wildlife and habitat projects in Wyoming. The accomplishments of The Foundation to date have been significant, but our goal is to work even harder to develop the resources needed to assure that the future of Wyoming’s great outdoors will be just as bright as its past.
Wyoming Wildlife – The Foundation raises funds to support projects that are critical to sustaining and improving natural resources only in Wyoming.
WW-TF funds projects that benefit threatened game and non-game species in decline by funding research and education and/or restorative projects. These projects improve habitat and water quality by enhancing the land and water to sustain and manage wildlife.
The Foundation also funds conservation and education projects intended to promote, inspire and encourage youth to consider careers in the great outdoors. After all, the ability to conserve and protect our resources depends on our ability to attract our future scientists, conservationist and outdoor law enforcement officers.
WW-FT also seeks funding to provide access to the land for hunters and non-hunters alike. WW-TF supports the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Access program and conservation easements that provide private land access for hunters and recreationalists.
How You Can Help
The work of The Foundation depends on tax-deductible contributions from private individuals, public foundations and other willing funders like you to help support our projects. WW-TF is not a membership organization. Unlike other conservation and wildlife organizations, we do not solicit annual memberships to support our conservation efforts. We don’t offer incentives or trinkets to entice you to support wildlife; your gifts go directly to supporting “on-the-ground” projects that benefit Wyoming’s wildlife, statewide.
