“We must all do our part to ensure the traditions we all currently enjoy. Making sure future generations are afforded the same opportunities takes investment and planning today. What better way to enjoy the hunt with those we love when we are gone than to invest with SCIF with planned giving.”

Holland & Carolyn Powell, SCI Foundation Heritage Society Members




“Pursuing wild game in wild places creates a memorable life.  Leaving these opportunities for those in the future creates a memorable legacy. Join us in including SCI Foundation as part of your planned giving. Working together we will lead and make a difference in our hunting heritage!”
