Contributing to the Boone and Crockett Club
Donations to the Club will help continue the Boone and Crockett Club's Legacy of Conservation Leadership.
Since its founding in 1887, the Boone and Crockett Club’s history has exemplified leadership…that of developing, enhancing, and promoting America’s wildlife conservation movement. The Boone and Crockett Club was the first private organization to provide leadership in identifying and resolving conservation issues of national scope. The Club’s influence has proven far in excess of any ordinary organization of its size. Over the past 118 years, Club members have helped to set aside more land, created more conservation organizations, and initiated more legislation and programs for the benefit of wildlife than any other institution.
The Boone and Crockett Club’s leadership vision in conservation of wildlife and wild places over the past century closely follows that of our founder, Theodore Roosevelt. Our path has always been a thoughtful course ranging between preservation and sustainable use of our natural resources. The leadership of individual Club members has defined our legacy and established the rules for hunting and conservation for more than a century.
- Influencing national and international conservation policy by promoting common sense management backed by science, both directly and indirectly, through our members’ actions and partnerships with other institutions;
- Developing the next generation of conservation leadership through university partnerships, our endowed professorship programs, grants-in-aid programs for young professionals, and the coordinated influence and activities of our professional membership;
- Training tomorrow's conservation leaders through demonstrated excellence in field programs and setting standards for excellence in applied conservation education and teacher training, and professional enhancement;
- Continuing to define the rules of fair chase hunting and criteria for big game records, and applying them to conservation.
