Bismarck, ND – MTN DEW is awarding the North Dakota Wildlife Federation (NDWF) a $5,000 grant in support of the organization’s ongoing commitment to R3 (Recruitment, Retention, Reactivation of hunters and anglers). NDWF is one of twenty nonprofits in the country to receive a grant through MTN DEW Outdoor Grants program. To receive a grant, all winning organizations either applied or were nominated at http://www.DEWOutdoors.com/Grants and shared their commitment to the outdoor experience – whether that is through wildlife conservation, environmental organization or just outdoor recreation.
In a year when people have been cooped up in their homes, spending time outdoors is more important than ever before. To answer fan demand, MTN DEW launched the MTN DEW Outdoor Grants and pledged $100,000 in grant funds to support organizations that protect the beautiful lands we all love – in addition to its MTN DEW Outdoor Stimulus, which gave already gave fans a boost by reimbursing more than $200,000 in hunting and fishing permits earlier this year.
North Dakota Wildlife Federation shares our passion for adventure and freedom in nature, and believes it is crucial that we come together to power up the outdoor experience and enable people to get outside.
“We’re thrilled to receive a $5,000 grant through MTN DEW’s Outdoor Grants program, which reinforces the important work we’re doing to create a new generation of hunters and anglers here in North Dakota,” said John Bradley, Executive Director of the North Dakota Wildlife Federation.
“The funds will go a long way to help our affiliates who were unable hold banquets this year and will also help NDWF meet our mission of conserving, protecting and enhancing wildlife for the continuing benefit of everyone.” NDWF plans to use the $5,000 grant to support their affiliate clubs’ youth and women hunts, as well as their conservation education.
