Houston, TX (May 10, 2018) – Houston Safari Club (HSC) continues its support of Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation through a grant of $15,000 to support their incredible efforts to defend hunting, fishing and trapping against lawsuits, legislation and ballot issues initiated by animal rights and anti-hunting organizations.
For 40 years, the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation has been able to achieve a 95% success rate of defeating anti-hunting led initiatives. Unfortunately, the number of new anti-hunting initiatives is increasing and the only way they can meet those challenges is with increased funding from supporters like HSC. “We’re extremely grateful that the Board and members of the Houston Safari Club continue to demonstrate the importance of fighting to protect our heritage,” said Evan Heusinkveld, Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation president and CEO. “It’s through the commitment of organizations like HSC that we’re able to engage in battles all across the country.”
Strengthening the partnership between Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation and HSCF will help ensure the future of our nation’s outdoor heritage. Funding provided will be used to advance the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation mission of protecting and advancing sportsmen’s rights by supporting their actions across the breadth of the outdoor community.
“HSCF firmly supports the efforts of the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation to protect wildlife and hunting and support education, legal defense and research in the best interest of the hunting populace,” states Joe Betar, HSCF Executive Director.
