Established in 1981, the N.C. Wildlife Endowment Fund allows hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts to become shareholders in an innovative investment and conservation program. A simple, yet revolutionary idea, the wildlife fund resulted in the creation of lifetime licenses, with those associated license fees and any other specified contributions put into a special fund spending the accrued interest, not the principal, on programs and projects that benefit fish and wildlife. Since the fund's inception, the Wildlife Commission has spent more than $50 million in interest on programs and projects.
You may make a tax deductible contribution directly to the N.C. Wildlife 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.
