Donor Driven Research

Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) has a 20-year history of being a leader in science-based, research-driven solutions to real problems facing wildlife conservation and sustainable use of wildlife resources. We partner with leading wildlife researchers at places like the Wyoming Migration Initiative at the University of Wyoming, the Center for Global Wildlife Conservation at SUNY-ESF, and the W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation at the University of Montana, to bring the latest applied techniques to wildlife conservation issues. However, doing cutting-edge, impactful research requires resources.

Although SCIF pursues a variety of opportunities to support our critical work, SCI members and SCIF donors and supporters remain the core source of the funds that make this work possible. Their passion for wildlife and for conservation expressed through their generosity provides the foundation upon which all of our efforts are built. Contributions through the Lion and Shield Society, the Hunter Legacy Fund 100 Endowment, and the First for Wildlife Endowment, as well as participation in SCI Foundation sweepstakes and the annual Beretta Gala, are all ways to support worldwide conservation and to show the dedication of SCI’s 40,000 hunter-conservationists. 

Your support is critical and we welcome you to explore and donate to these projects.


SCI Foundation is dedicated to helping hunters make their dreams come true.  Enter the SCIF DREAM HUNTS SWEEPSTAKES for your chance at winning $100,000 to go towards booking the dream hunts of your choice – any species, any place. 

Mission Programs


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.
