In order to make it possible for donors to establish a direct connection with the efforts they support, the Foundation has implemented several different ways in which to give. Our staff can answer your inquiries and questions and assist with specific aspects of establishing Personal Fundraising projects. Please contact Brett Boston at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-988-4889. Among the most preferred donor options are:
Friends of the Foundation are dedicated individuals committed to the preservation of Florida’s natural areas and its fish and wildlife resources. Friends receive invitations to special events, a subscription to the Wild News newsletter, and they are entitled to discounts on selected Foundation gear. More important, Friends know that their generosity helps the State persevere in the fight to help make sure our fish, wildlife, and natural habitats thrive for future generations.

Residents and non‐residents alike can choose to contribute to the Foundation by making planned gift donations. The Foundation offers a number of planned giving options, including:
- The donation of cash or securities
- The donation of real estate
A living legacy benefits potential donors in a number of ways:
- Tax benefits can be maximized
- Extra income can be generated for retirement, elder care and other needs
Many employers have matching gift programs and will match any charitable donations their employees make to eligible non-profit organizations. Some will also match donations made by retirees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please consult your Human Resources Department. If they do have a program, ask them their procedure for matching your gift.
A Wildlife Foundation of Florida memorial gift is an especially thoughtful way to celebrate the memory of a friend, colleague, or loved one. You can designate a specific project or area to benefit from the gift or you can allow the Foundation to use it where it is most urgently needed. As soon as your gift is received, the Foundation will send a personalized tribute to the recipient’s family, notifying them of your thoughtful donation.

The Foundation supports a number of on-going special projects, like the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (FYCCN), and the Florida Marine Fisheries Enhancement Initiative, which require a constant stream of funding. Supporters can opt to direct their gifts to a particular project, or allow the Foundation to direct their gift to whichever project has the greatest need. Gifts can also be directed to benefit a certain area, such as marine life, fighting invasive species, etc.
