Our Mission

The Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin provides sustainable funding for Wisconsin’s most imperiled species and public lands, while connecting generations to the wonders of Wisconsin’s lands, waters, and wildlife through conservation, education, engagement and giving.

With your help, we have provided more than $6.45 million to conservation efforts across Wisconsin, while more than 40,000 people have explored Wisconsin's natural wonders through our Field Trip program. We also created the Wisconsin Conservation Endowment, which includes more than 70 endowment funds with more than $5 million in assets that permanently support specific lands, conservation programs, and wildlife species in Wisconsin.
