The previous comment is inaccurate. The United Sportsman's Youth Foundation has not been dissolved!!! It is currently in good standing with the Illinois Secretary of State. Please feel free to verify this by accessing the Illinois Secretary of State web site link http://www.ilsos.gov/corporatellc/CorporateLlcController Certificate number 62197579. Beyond correcting the previous misstatement this charity's efforts are very worthwhile. Working with children and adults to foster and appreciation of conservation and the environment has touched the lives of thousands of individuals in a positive manner. This charity has little to no overhead and gives the monies donated directly to the programs that support it’s mission.
