Our Mission

SCI Foundation funds and directs worldwide programs dedicated to wildlife conservation and outdoor education.

SCI Foundation ensures the best available science is used in wildlife policy and management, and demonstrates the constructive role that hunting and hunters play in the conservation of biodiversity worldwide.  The organization is “First for Wildlife,” investing millions of dollars into wildlife conservation and education every year.

Mission Programs


Conservation Efforts never cease, and through chapter projects, SCI Foundation grants and scholarships, and regional programs, members of Safari Club International make a difference in the life of the environment and the animals that live there.



Education Programs, for both children and adults, provide a hands-on opportunity to experience the outdoors and to spread the knowledge of conservation and wildlife management. One of these education programs is Sensory Safari, a program in which the blind can learn about nature through touch exhibits. SCI Foundation also opened the International Wildlife Museum in Tucson, Arizona, to increase knowledge of, and appreciation for, the diverse wildlife of the world.

Chapter Driven Programs

Humanitarian Services

Humanitarian Service Programs are also a primary initiative of SCI Foundation. Through Sportsmen Against Hunger and SafariCare, food and supplies are provided to those in need, both in our backyard and in remote places of the world. The Disabled Hunter program fosters opportunities for disabled sportsmen and women to experience the hunting tradition. SafariWish grants hunting related wishes to those dealing with terminal or life-threatening illnesses.
