Safari Club International is the leader in protecting the freedom to hunt and promoting wildlife conservation worldwide. These primary missions are supported through the many arenas of the organization.

Advocate: Since 2000, SCI has spent $140 million on protecting the freedom to hunt through policy advocacy, litigation, and education for federal and state legislators to ensure hunting is protected for future generations. Through direct involvement and partnerships with like-minded organizations, SCI has become a political force in Washington, D.C. and other world capitals.

Connect: When you become a member of SCI, you join a network of over 55,000 like-minded individuals all over the world. In your local community there may already be an official SCI chapter. Working side by side, holding similar attitudes about the importance and responsibility of being a hunter, SCI members make a tangible difference through conservation efforts in their communities and voicing their concerns to representatives who take them to the floors of Washington.

Educate: The weekly E-Newsletters In The Crosshairs  and Hunt Now! provide breaking news, legal issues, government actions, product reviews, and exciting stories of the hunt, to more than 45,000 members. Through our publications, Safari Magazine and Safari Times, we keep you up to date on events and board actions as well, teach you some tips and techniques, and stories about other membersĖŠ hunting expeditions.

Represent: SCI members help shape and promote the image of the hunter to non-hunters through their words and actions. In addition to practicing ethical hunting while in the field and around others, members can give back by participating in humanitarian efforts taking place across the globe through the affiliated charitable organization, Safari Club International Foundation.

 

30% of the funds raised at the Wichita Chapter of SCI banquet go to to SCI International to support their efforts on a truly global scale.  70% of the funs raised go to supporting projects selected by the Board of Directors to support primarily Kansas based projects including KDWP Youth Hunter Education, Kansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry, Pass It On! Outdoor Mentors, and more.  We also support international conservation groups like Chiredzi River African Wildlife Trust (CRAWT) and Conservation Force.

HUNTERS FEEDING THE HUNGRY

If you would like, you may also donate a portion of the meat you are having processed for yourself to a participating processor also.Just ONE deer can feed nearly 200 hungry people in the state of Kansas. In 2015, there were 761 deer, feeding nearly 540,000 meals.Contributions from hunters, businesses, churches, sportsmen’s clubs, organizations and other foundations help to fund the KSHFH.

The primary expense for this organization is being able to pay the participating butchers to process, package and freeze the donated venison for distribution by local food pantries. Volunteers help to organize and coordinate the efforts of KSHFH in communities across the state by helping with fundraising, promotional gatherings, meat donation, meat distribution and much more.
If interested in how you can become a volunteer and help in your community, contact a member of the Board of Directors for information and opportunities. As a statewide effort, we can make a difference.

One of our perennial projects, Kansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry, helps provide a critical link between sportsmen and women and Kansans in need.  Over the years, we have helped KHFH provide over 2.5 million meals!

KSHFH invites you to donate any legally harvested deer or elk to our participating meat processors. There is no cost to donate your deer or elk as long as the KSHFH organization has sufficient funding to cover the processing expense. Donated game must be field dressed and legally tagged.
