The MWFP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit private organization. Support for the Foundation comes from generous donations by the sportsmen of Mississippi. The Foundation is fully funded by monetary and in-kind contributions such as land, materials and supplies.
Support for the Foundation can either be directed through our website or via our mailing address. Mississippi taxpayers have the option of contributing an amount from their state income tax refund to the Foundation. Additionally, purchasers of a Mississippi hunting or fishing license have the opportunity to make a contribution to the Foundation at the time of purchase.
While a gift to the Foundation impacts the current conservation and enhancement of our fish and wildlife resources, it is also an investment for the benefit of future generations. Planned giving of land, stock or through one’s estate is a great way to ensure your descendants are afforded the same outdoor pursuits you enjoyed as a Mississippian.
Your donation will be used in general support of Foundation’s efforts across the state. More than 90 percent of the Foundation’s spending is directed to its mission. The Foundation annually reports on charitable activities and directs independent audits be performed on its financial stewardship.
