Donor Spotlight Videos

Paul Babaz

“If we don’t get kids involved, get them away from video games and get them to experience the outdoors firsthand, we’ll never get them hooked; but if we get them started early, they’ll get hooked on it and they will find the time for hunting.”  Paul Babaz

Thanks to incredible donors, volunteers and staff, SCI Foundation has made great strides in organizing and funding many mission critical programs. The SCI Foundation flagship donor program is the Society of the Lion & Shield.  The Lion & Shield program recognizes all levels of donors starting at the “Wolf Level” or those who’ve made gifts of $100-$250 and runs on up to our highest level of the African Lion who have given $100,000 or more.   Look for a new series of Donor Profile videos over the next several months that highlight some of our Lion-level supporters and allow you to get a closer glimpse of who these great people are and why they are so involved and invested in SCIF.

“There would be so many species that would not be around right now had there not been hunters that are actively engaged in trying to protect and conserve these species for future generations.” Brad Jannenga

“Watching people go out into the field for the first time and the excitement in everything they see, even if they don’t shoot anything, but realizing: ‘Holy Smokes, this is a lot better than playing on my phone.’ That’s what excites me.” Mark Peterson

C.J. Sibert

“If we do not jump in, if we do not take control of the fight, we will lose.  It’s imperative that we get people in to help with money, with personal time, with anything they can do.  If we can continue what we have, what we are growing and what we are doing within the Foundation and SCI, we have a chance.” CJ Sibert

Holland and Carolyn Powell

“Hunters do so many good things.  That’s who we are.  We’re hunter-gatherers.  Trying to be something else is just folly.  Recognize that. Celebrate it…. Let’s find the best ways to do this.  Let’s do it right” Holland Powell

Roman DeVille

“I am absolutely convinced that without conservation: ten, twenty, thirty, forty years from now there will be no hunting; there will be no animals.” Roman DeVille

Brook Minx

“Safari Club International Foundation, they just have whatever your interest happens to be for the conservation of wildlife and sustainable-use, that’s what we do.  If not us, who?”  Brook Minx
