Support WWA by making tax-deductible cash and non-cash donations to our Legacy Endowment Fund!

What is an endowment fund and how can this help WWA you ask?  Well, this is essentially a restricted fund we have set aside to help sustain themission of WWA. Using the endowment investment model, WWA's endowment fund will be able to provide our organization with annual support and to maintain purchasing power long term so that there is greater financial stability for us to maintain our mission.

How can you help? As with any fund, of course, the greater the balance, the more support WWA will receive annually from our optional distribution.  Through the GGBCF, WWA can now accept your non-cash gifts, such as stock, real estate, mutual funds or life insurance.  Additionally, donors may give cash or credit card donations through GGBCF and will receive all appropriate documentation for tax purposes. Please help us to continue the mission of WWA by making a fully tax deductible donation to this Fund.

Today Is Giving Tuesday!



I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and, for those who are partaking, also  a safe and prosperous hunting season so far. We here at WWA are ever thankful for you, our membership, and your support. We hope that you will continue to support WWA on this #GivingTuesday by making a tax deductible contribution, renewing your membership or joining as a member for the first time.

What is   Giving Tuesday? We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.


On this #GivingTuesday, we hope you will support your local conservation organization, Wisconsin Waterfowl Association and our mission of habitat, education and legislation.  All donations and memberships are fully tax deductible; please read on for the details of many other ways you can support us on this Giving Tuesday. 


See you on the water,
