About MWFP Foundation
In 2003, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP) established a foundation to assist in protecting and preserving our wildlife heritage.
The mission of the Mississippi Wildlife Fisheries and Parks Foundation is to augment the state’s efforts to ensure the conservation and enhancement of our fish and wildlife resources so they survive and thrive for current and future generations. 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.
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.
