Wildlife Diversity Endowment Fund – Give a gift that lasts forever

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 will be placed into a special fund. 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 NC 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.
