Matthew Taylor – Major Gifts Manager
Matthew grew up in Northeast Georgia fishing for bass and trout in the spring and hunting whitetail deer and squirrels in the fall. Matthew has an MBA from Georgia Southern University and brings more than 12 years of non-profit major gift fundraising experience to the SCI Foundation. He went on his first trip to Africa in 2014 and quickly developed a love for Africa and an appreciation for the role of the hunter/conservationist.
Since 2000, SCI Foundation has provided more than $80 million to promote science-based conservation through wildlife research, capacity building in governments, youth and teacher education, and humanitarian programs that show the importance of the hunting community in society around the world. Growth of SCI Foundation has continued to gain momentum through charitable donations from SCI members and direct grants from local chapters and the SCI organization. Throughout the world, SCI’s approximately 50,000 members and 190 chapters contribute time, talent, and financial support to local, national, and international projects.
