Wildlife Heritage Society - Gifting - 1 Million & Counting
The OTF established the WHS in 2008 as a Planned Giving and Endowment Program to help interested individuals who wish to leave a lasting legacy by including the Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation and its mission in their estate plans. Planned giving is an opportunity to make a significant difference while still alive.
Jerry Mumfrey is a Charter Member of the WHS through his estate plan as a bequest.
Why I Give...
As an organization, the Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation provides lasting opportunities for Youth to become involved in outdoor and hunting activities.
I feel this education is critical if we are to continue our hunting heritage for generations to come. Join me as we set the groundwork for our Youth through outdoor education.

Why We Give...
We have been involved with the Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation for many years.
The great things the foundation accomplishes are endless.
We are proud to be part of the "future" and the generations that follow.
Steve and Yvonne Miller
Steve and Yvonne Miller, proud supporters of OTF Wildlife Heritage Society.
Why We Give...
Yvonne and I recognize that the OTF Outdoor Adventures program is the only public education curriculum teaching our youth that successful wildlife conservation includes hunting, especially now that wild habitat is rapidly decreasing.
The OTF Wildlife Heritage Society endowment helps fund this essential endeavor and we are proud to be
a part of it.
Dr. Don Senter & Val Senter
Dr. Don Senter & Val Senter, avid supporters of OTF's Outdoor Adventures.
Why We Give...
My support now goes to OTF’s Outdoor Adventures after having worked with many youth hunter education programs since the early 80’s,
Can you imagine a Public School Program that teaches Hunter Safety Certification, the American Model of Wildlife Conservation, and does it mostly at the States expense? A whole semester of OTF’s Outdoor Adventures has a cost per student about the same as a Saturday field event. Hopefully, others will see the value of this program and help promote my goal of 10,000 schools in the next ten years.
Education of the future voters of our country in the value of Hunting as a Conservation Tool can insure our Hunting Heritage. Many will become hunters as well.
