Dear Fellow Conservationists,
As an active National Wild Turkey Federation member, you understand our organization and the sacred relationship between wildlife, wild places and people. The last four months have changed all our lives and challenged us to re-evaluate our priorities and our passions. In short, COVID-19 has threatened lives, livelihoods and the NWTF.
To help sustain our mission, we have had to streamline our organization to better fit the financial reality of today. These measures were painful but helped us reduce expenses substantially. However, it is not enough; we still need your help to keep our mission, our operations and our field work alive. Replacing the lost revenue from shutting down our fundraising events this spring will ensure our beloved mission lives on for future generations. This is the reason we are issuing a rare Call for All to raise an additional $5 Million this summer.
Over the next few weeks, we are asking ALL members to consider an additional gift to the National Wild Turkey Federation. No contribution is too small. Participation from 100% of our membership, while a lofty goal, will reinforce the faith you have in the Federation and the collective commitment we have to our mission of preserving our hunting heritage and the conservation of the wild turkey. The funds raised will be key in jump-starting many of the important initiatives the national pandemic has sidelined.
The NWTF remains steadfast. But now, more than ever, we need the help of our members to keep our mission moving forward.
Please join me in giving to the NWTF in this time of great need. https://your.nwtf.org/call-for-all/
Yours in Conservation,
