SCI Foundation funds and directs worldwide programs dedicated to wildlife conservation and outdoor education.Learn More
Conservation Efforts never cease, and through chapter projects, SCI Foundation grants and scholarships, and regional programs, members of Safari Club International put their time and resources to use to benefit wildlife populations around the world. SCI Foundation ensures the best available science is used in wildlife policy and management and demonstrates the constructive role that hunting plays in the conservation of biodiversity worldwide.
Education Programs, for both youth and adults, provide a hands-on opportunity to experience the outdoors and spread the knowledge of conservation, wildlife management and the important role hunters play. Programs offered though SCIF’s American Wilderness Leadership School and the International Wildlife Museum as well as through partnerships with the Salvation Army outdoors program, the Boy Scouts and others continue to increase support for conservation.
Humanitarian Service Programs are also a primary initiative of SCI Foundation. The programs cover a wide perspective and cross the globe in outreach. These programs include the SafariCare Bell Family Blue Bag program, Sportsmen Against Hunger, Pathfinder Program, Veterans, Sensory Safari and Humanitarian Service Matching Grants. At the core of these programs is delivering activities and services to those in need.
