About the Foundation

What is the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LWFF)? 

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation was created for the purpose of promoting LDWF and to further encourage public conservation and enjoyment of Louisiana’s natural resources. Upon its creation in December 1995, it was envisioned as a Foundation that would promote the welfare of LDWF, reflecting the belief that there was more to accomplish than governmental resources could cover. The proposed Foundation would support Department programs with additional resources developed through its own facilities.

The concept of a Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation was put to the test when Secretary Herring and a small group of sportsmen and conservationists met to discuss and develop a means for individuals and corporations to partner with LDWF. Don Puckett, former LDWF general counsel, drafted Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws, and after a few revisions, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation was born. On December 14, 1995, the Articles of Incorporation were signed by six incorporators: John Campbell, Jr., a Baton Rouge attorney, Glynn Carver, a Many businessman (then a Wildlife and Fisheries Commission member), Marc Dupuy, Jr., a Marksville attorney, Jim Hall, a Ruston banker, John Jackson, III, a Metairie attorney and Cliff Penick, a Slidell contractor.

The Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation is a nonprofit, public charitable foundation, tax exempt under Section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and so recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (for form click). Its goals are to aid the Department in habitat conservation, youth recruitment, environmental education and training, natural resource research and management, regulation enforcement, and financial assistance to LDWF programs. These goals can be more frequently accomplished by aiding the Department through monetary donations from individuals and corporations.

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation receives no funding from the State of Louisiana or the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and depends entirely upon contributions from individual and corporate donors. Encouraging cooperation and support for LDWF programs is the major focus of the Foundation, accomplished by connecting people and businesses with Louisiana’s natural resources.
