About the foundation

From the hills in the northeast to the fertile alluvial soil in the Delta, and down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast – the Magnolia State offers residents and our guests’ endless outdoor opportunities. Whether you enjoy hunting, fishing, boating, bird watching or just being outdoors, there is something for everyone.

In 2003, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) established a foundation to assist in protecting and preserving our wildlife heritage. The Foundation is the only outdoor organization that directly supports the MDWFP, which has the primary responsibility for hunting, fishing, shooting sports and conservation in the state.

Through the Foundation’s financial support, various wildlife and educational projects associated with the MDWFP are made possible. We also help fund many additional programs not directly associated with the MDWFP whose goal is to preserve and protect the natural resources of the state.

Program Highlight

The Foundation is helping the young people of Mississippi make their first step in becoming a lifelong hunting & fishing license purchaser. Every young person who has completed the Hunter Education course and is age-eligible for the voluntary youth hunting/fishing license, the Foundation will purchase their $5.00 license.

Support the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Black Bear Program. Donations can be used by MDWFP to purchase additional tracking collars, traps, and other tools for monitoring and improving MS’s black bear population.
