Establish a Fund
Establishing a fund at Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation enables you to make a direct impact on conserving the wild things and wild places in Texas.
Field of Interest Fund
A field of interest fund supports a Texas conservation project of your choice. In collaboration with TPWF staff, you determine the purpose and scope of the fund at inception, and TPWF awards grants going forward. A field of interest fund can accept additional contributions from other supporters, allowing your impact to extend beyond the scope of your original gift.
A donor-advised fund provides you with more involvement in the grant-making process and flexibility to support a variety of projects in Texas. A donor-advised fund does not have a specified purpose at inception. You can recommend distributions on your own timetable for any qualified conservation project. You may add additional contributions to your donor-advised fund at any time.
An Example of How It Works
Joe and Laura Smith enjoy spending time outdoors in Texas. They have reached a point in their lives where they are able to give back to the things they love. They establish a $100,000 donor-advised fund with Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation called The Smith Family Texas Conservation Fund. The couple receives a federal income tax charitable deduction for the amount of the gift. They work with TPWF staff to learn about the broad array of conservation projects that their fund can support and recommend gifts on their own timetable. Joe and Laura are delighted to start this personal legacy of giving to benefit the wild things and places in Texas.
