Thank you—your support makes this all possible

thank you!

Thanks to your generosity, the full $8,000 matching gift provided by Libby and Frank Duff of the Battle Foundation was met! Your dedication to conservation in Tennessee made this the most successful end of fiscal year campaign in the Federation's history. Thank you for taking a stand to conserve our state's natural resources.

Thanks to people like you, the Federation is well prepared to tackle what we expect will be one of the most challenging years for conservation and our local communities. 

Already, we're working hard to ensure our programs go above and beyond the call of duty for our wildlife, great outdoors, and neighbors during these difficult times. 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting our wildlife, waters, and wild places. 

Sincerely,
Kendall McCarter

Last chance to double your gift and conserve TN’s wildlife

Friends,

If you’ve donated—THANK YOU! 

If you haven’t yet, today is the last day to make a gift to ensure we start the new season off strong.

There’s still time to support conservation in Tennessee and help ensure our outdoor places and wildlife continue to thrive for generations.

Our friends, Libby and Frank Duff of the Battle Foundation, will match your donation—dollar for dollar—up to $8,000. Donate before midnight June 30th to have your gift matched!
As the most biologically diverse inland state, Tennessee has a lot to be proud of. From lively wetlands to mountainous forests, Tennessee is home to some of the best natural landscapes, wildlife and outdoor recreation in the country.

And our wild places not only allow us a place to retreat to, they provide food for our families and our neighbors in need. 

Due to the results of the pandemic, we’re expecting our wildlife and communities to need us more than ever in the months to come. 

Take a stand for our state’s wildlife and natural resources now so they can continue to be there for us when we need them.

Sincerely,
Kendall McCarter
Chief Development Officer

P.S.— Conserve our state’s natural heritage, feed Tennessee families in need, and recruit more conservationists for Tennessee’s future by making a gift by midnight tonight.

Advocate for wildlife—double your gift for one more day

Friends,

We're almost there!

Make a gift before June 30th and your generosity will be matched dollar for dollar. Will you take a stand for wildlife and make a donation today?
For nearly three-quarters of a century, the Federation has been working toward common-ground solutions on issues affecting our wildlife and natural resources such as invasive species, litter, and conservation.

This strategic work has brought wildlife populations back from the brink, and it’s only possible with the support of our community.

But as funding and government budgets are being shuffled to handle the pandemic, Tennessee’s wildlife and natural resources need a strong voice advocating on their behalf now more than ever.
What happens now will have long-term impacts on the wildlife and outdoor places we rely on in times of need.

We know that many can’t contribute right now. But if you are able, please consider showing your support of the public policy work and other life-changing programs that help feed Tennesseans and inspire the next generation of conservationists.

Sincerely,
Kendall McCarter
Chief Development Officer

P.S. — If you’ve recently spent time out in nature enjoying our state’s natural resources and wildlife and want to conserve them for generations to come—please make a gift before June 30th. Your investment will be matched, dollar for dollar up to $8,000, by Libby and Frank Duff of the Battle Foundation while the match is still available.

Help pass the Great American Outdoors Act!


If you’ve taken action to help pass the Great American Outdoors Act in the House, THANK YOU! 

The bill has already passed the Senate, but we still need the House to follow suit. So, if you haven’t already, now is the time to make sure your voice is heard.


If passed, the Great American Outdoors Act will:

  • Provide full and dedicated funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund
  • Help protect wildlife
  • Expand outdoor recreation opportunities
  • Address the massive maintenance backlog impacting our national parks’ and other federal lands
  • Create jobs

Let’s secure a historic victory for our wildlife, waters, and wild places. Let your Congressman know how important this bill is to you. Tell them to vote for the Great American Outdoors Act!

1 in 6 TN children go hungry—but you can change that

Friends,

Did you know, Hunters for the Hungry provides more than half a million servings of lean venison to families and children in need each year, while also helping manage our deer population?

But with the pandemic, more Tennesseans are experiencing hardship than ever before—many for the first time. As we approach the end of our fiscal year, the Federation is preparing to meet the greatest need our neighbors will have for food—especially protein. 

If you can, please give today, so Hunters for the Hungry and our other programs such as Habitat Conservation and Hunting and Fishing Academy can continue the life-changing work that conserves wildlife and cares for our community.
Right now, your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $8,000 by Libby and Frank Duff of the Battle Foundation. There's never been a better time to support wildlife in Tennessee.

Sincerely,
Kendall McCarter
Chief Development Officer

P.S.— The matching gift will only be available to double your gift through June 30th! Stand up for wildlife today and make a gift that shows how much you care.
