SFW Reports Results of Out-of-pocket Contributions to Wildlife

We are proud to report that Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife continues its record of contributions and generosity for
wildlife in America:

  • SFW is #1 in conservation dollars in the last reporting year;
  • SFW is #1 in conservation dollars raised in last 10 years ($7.2 Million);
  • SFW has invested $1,362,345 in wildlife, habitat and mission-related activities from 2008 to 2012; and,
  • This $1.36 million of out-of-pocket contributions are not “conservation permit” dollars.

SFW played a key role working with Utah Division of Wildlife Director Keven Conway in changing policies and establishing programs to start the Utah Watershed Initiative. SFW leveraged these dollar and played a key role in obtaining tens of millions in matching dollars – the $70 Million watershed project Director Karpowitz recently commented on.

All of this is a clear testament to the dedication and hard work of SFW’s volunteers and professionals. We thank them, each and every one, for the personal sacrifices of time, money, equipment and expertise in making SFW a leading conservation group that fights passionately for the future of wildlife in Utah and America.

We have updated our website to make some of this financial information more readily available. For more information visit http://www.sfw.net/your-money/.

The state of Utah and other conservation partners are producing results by working together for the future of conservation. We will continue not only our dedication to restoration of wildlife populations through habitat improvement, but also in protecting wildlife by fencing of highways, responsible predator management, resolving wildlife conflicts and finding ways to augment wildlife in Utah.
