WSF Giving Societies
In 2013 the Wild Sheep Foundation launched a $25 Million fundraising campaign - Ensuring the Future of Wild Sheep (ETFOWS.) This initiative offers tax and estate planning services, counsel and advice on major gifts, and giving societies to generate funding necessary to ensure the future of the wild sheep resource by directing even more dollars to wild sheep restoration, repatriation and conservation. Our vision is to build a series of funds, with a targeted annual off-take of approximately 4% allowing WSF to direct an additional $1 million annually in mission-focused funding to “Put and Keep Wild Sheep on the Mountain®”. With your help, we can achieve this vision and goal.
WSF Society donations can be made to the Wild Sheep Legacy Foundation (WSLF) Endowment Fund, the WSF Conservation Fund, or Area of Greatest Need.
Please give today and help us ensure a bright future for wild sheep!
Chadwick Ram Society
The Chadwick Ram Society offers five benefactor levels, enabling tax-deductible, donor-directed gifts ranging from $250 to $5,000 per year. Donations can be made in annual installments or in a lump sum. Members may “upgrade” their benefactor level at any time and can direct their contributions to WSF mission areas of interest.
Marco Polo Society
The Marco Polo Society is WSF’s premier giving society. Its members are donors of $100,000 or more, with gifts that can be made in a lump sum or over a 10-year commitment. Funds raised through the Marco Polo Society are a foundation of the WSF’s Ensuring the Future of Wild Sheep capital campaign.
WSF’s Legacy Society recognizes individuals, families and foundations making testamentary bequests or contributions of major gifts, gift annuities or other charitable-giving instruments. WSF has recognized 39 Legacy Society members since inception of WSF’s Ensuring the Future of Wild Sheep (ETFOWS) capital campaign.
