Grassroots Conservation Campaign
QF raises over 30 Million Dollars through the Grassroots Conservation Campaign
Exceeding original Campaign goal of 25 million dollars and drastically increasing the organization’s impact on wildlife habitat and America’s Youth.
Quail Forever announces during the five-year Grassroots Conservation Campaign, Quail Forever (QF) raised more than 30 million dollars for upland traditions. These resources have provided Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever with the opportunity to dramatically increase its impact on habitat and youth across the country.
Quail Forever thanks the hundreds of passionate Americans who answered the call to do more for upland birds, more for upland habitat, and those who chose to leave an upland legacy for future generations by contributing to Quail Forever’s Grassroots Conservation Campaign.
“Our original objective for the Campaign was to accelerate Quail Forever’s ability to conserve and enhance North American’s wildlife resources and America’s hunting tradition. We have done that and much more,” states Howard K. Vincent – Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever President and CEO. “Not only did we exceed our original Campaign monetary goal of 25 million dollars, but more importantly the Campaign helped Quail Forever impact more habitat in the last five years than we thought possible.”
Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever Milestones generated by the Campaign Include:
•Over 8.5 million acres impacted – 4.1 million since 2007 when the Campaign began.
•More than 1,313 land acquisitions, representing 161,867 acres open to public hunting.
•Exceeded 441,963 wildlife habitat projects.
•250,000 youth mentored through outdoor initiatives.
“These are some great results, and on behalf of Quail Forever ‘Thank You’ to the hundreds of Grassroots Conservation Campaign donors and partners,” states David R. Bue, Quail Forever Vice President of Development. “It is important that all upland hunters realize that the pressures being put on wildlife habitat are even greater today than they were in 2007 when Quail Forever launched the Campaign. Wildlife habitat is vanishing at never before seen rates, and we need the support of every upland hunter."
