The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of NH is the official non-profit partner of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. The Foundation raises money and works with wildlife professionals and conservation education partners to fund the Department’s conservation of wildlife and natural places important to New Hampshire’s family traditions, such as hunting, fishing and watching wildlife.
Making an Impact
The positive impact of the Foundation is already being felt. In recent years, the Foundation has supported publication of Wild Times for Kids, improvements at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, Fish and Game’s landowner relations program, Discover WILD New Hampshire Day and the National Hunting and Fishing Day NH Expo.
The Foundation is also helping to establish an endowment for Barry Conservation Camp, Fish and Game’s residential summer camp in Berlin, NH, where thousands of boys and girls have learned to hunt, fish, camp and appreciate the great outdoors over the past 30 years. The goal is to raise $50,000 for a dedicated Barry Camp Fund.
With future donations, the Foundation aims to support a range of projects, such as conservation education, purchase of land or conservation easements, conservation communication, fish and wildlife research projects, and supporting public access to lands and waters.
How to Help
Funding for the Foundation’s grant program comes from individual and corporate donors, and from the annual auctioning of fish and game permits and licenses (check the Foundation’s website in summer 2011 for information about the moose hunt auction). In most cases, contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible. The Foundation accepts general and targeted cash donations, as well as annuities and endowments.
