To our dedicated supporters:
As the summer comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I recently graduated from Columbia College of S.C. and am elated to join an organization that not only has a seasoned and passionate board and staff, but also the support of faithful donors and volunteers throughout the state.
My job encompasses many areas at SCWF, but my biggest responsibilities fall under event planning and membership. My hope for SCWF is that we can continue to grow more effective in boldly representing ALL outdoor enthusiasts. Since my first day in March, I have been gathering ideas from board, staff and many of you about making membership in SCWF more meaningful.
The most immediate way to impact SCWF is through monetary donations, and I wanted to thank all of our current and past donors for their support. With our annual fall membership drive in full swing, now is the time to renew your support for 2017. With your support, SCWF has been able and will continue to vigorously defend and protect our beautiful state and its wildlife through advocacy and education.
As 2018 approaches, know that we are working hard on new and exciting events for you and other supporters. Now, more than ever, is the time to become a member of SCWF so you can help directly support the essential conservation advocacy and unique education opportunities SCWF provides. As an active member of SCWF, you will be among the first to hear of upcoming events and have the opportunity to sign up before our most popular classes fill up.
With your generosity:
-We can and will PURSUE permanent measures to protect our river flows and ground water supplies so critical for outdoor recreation and wildlife.
-We can and will INSIST, as we have done for 87 years, principles of science and biology prevail in management of wildlife and fisheries, not political whim.
-We can and will RE-DOUBLE our efforts in providing opportunities for young people to spend more time outside, learning about and enjoying the natural world.
-We can and will STRENGTHEN our hands-on work with landowners in restoring long-leaf pine forest and other critical habitats for threatened species.
-We can and will CONTINUE to partner with the National Wildlife Federation in protecting public lands in South Carolina as well as in the west.
As you can tell, our plate is full, and we do it all with a staff of six, a volunteer board, and hundreds of volunteers. Without financial support from those who love South Carolina, it just can’t happen. So from the bottom of our hearts, we are grateful for your gifts during our fall membership campaign.
Thank you for your continued support,
