N.C. Wildlife Diversity Endowment Fund

When you give a gift to the Wildlife Diversity Endowment Fund, you give a gift that protects the future of nongame and endangered species in North Carolina.

Donations are placed into a special fund and the accrued interest – not the principal – will be spent on programs that benefit species that are not hunted or fished. Nongame projects are primarily funded through donations and every dollar in donations given to the fund is matched with federal and other grants, so donated dollars actually count twice.

Give a gift that lasts forever

You may make a tax deductible contribution directly to the N.C. Wildlife Diversity Endowment Fund or designate the Fund as a beneficiary of a bequest through your will or living trust. When making a memorial contribution, include the name and address of the person(s) making the donation as well as the name of the person(s) for whom the donation is being made. A card will be sent to the donor of the contribution.

Ways to Support


Donate on Line 30
  • The Wildlife Diversity Program’s largest and most significant source of state funding is the North Carolina Tax Check-off for Nongame and Endangered Wildlife.  Just enter an amount on line 30 of your North Carolina income tax form. Learn more about the Wildlife Diversity Program.


  • The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, in conjunction with the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles, offers a license plate for cars, campers and trailers. The newly designed Wildlife Conservation Plate, unveiled in January 2019, costs $30, with $20 from each plate going to the agency’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund. The new design replaces the cardinal and dogwood logo, which has been the symbol of the fund since 1983—the year the fund was first established by the North Carolina General Assembly. The fund supports projects and programs conducted by the Wildlife Diversity Program.
