Whitetails Unlimited Awards 1,600 Grants Totaling More Than $1.8 Million
Whitetails Unlimited’s Grassroots Program remains the envy of most national conservation organizations. This program provides grants to support local projects that strengthen WTU’s mission. This past fiscal year, Whitetails Unlimited awarded 1,604 grants to mission-related projects totaling $1,875,839. Our dedicated volunteers and entire membership base enjoy sharing in the responsibility of managing the nation’s most sought after big-game animal. They have witnessed the strengthening of some of WTU’s most successful programs and initiatives, including Staying on Target, HOPE for Wildlife, Preserving the Hunting Tradition, and our DEER Program.
Over the past 38 years, Whitetails Unlimited has recruited thousands of conservation minded individuals to join its ranks as chapter volunteers. As WTU volunteers, they share similar values with others concerned about the white-tailed deer, its habitat, and the future of deer hunting. Their continued dedication will remain a vital ingredient in the organization’s formula for success as we continue our journey through the 21st century.
