The Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation advances the conservation and appreciation of Missouri’s forest, fish, and wildlife resources by matching financial resources with the desired priorities of donors, the Foundation, and the Missouri Department of Conservation Guiding Principles: To ensure the continued success of the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation, the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers embrace the following guiding principles: • Conservation Values. Assure that Foundation activities are consistent with sound conservation science, principles, and practices and address priority needs for conserving Missouri’s natural resources and conservation heritage. • Ethical Behavior. Maintain the highest standard of ethical behavior in everything we do, and engage in projects and activities that contribute to the public welfare while furthering our mission. • Effective Partnering. Recognize the Missouri Department of Conservation as our primary strategic partner in identifying and addressing priority conservation needs, and actively collaborate with other organizations, corporations, and individuals who share our goals. • High Fiduciary Standards. Adhere to the highest fiduciary standards in the solicitation, investment, management and accounting of financial resources entrusted to us. • Efficient Use of Resources. Maximize benefits and return on use of financial resources by maintaining low administrative and overhead costs, by leveraging resources with partners, and by supporting projects with high likelihood of long-term success. • Effective Communications. Publicize our needs, plans, programs and successes while simultaneously respecting the privacy and desires of donors and partners.
Programs: Share the Harvest is a program that provides a mechanism through which hunters may donate venison to needy families. In 2009, $526,741.98 was donated to Share the Harvest, and 252,120 lbs. of healthy, high protein venison was distributed via 170 foodbanks and charities to Missouri families. This fed an estimated 290,000 people. Our current economic situation has increased the number of families seeking assistance to meet their nutritional needs. Food banks report that high protein red meat is the most difficult item to acquire. Your donation will help cover the $60 per deer subsidy paid to venison processors, and help us achieve our goal of distributing 600,000 lbs of venison each of the next two years!
If you wish to designate your entire gift or a percentage thereof to Share the Harvest, please indicate this in the "Special Instructions" box when you make your on-line donation.
