Giving Guide: Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation


The Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation was established in 1982 to help support the men and women of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and their important mission of keeping The Natural State natural. During its rich history, the commission has overseen the protection, conservation and preservation of various species of fish and wildlife and their habitats across Arkansas. A continuing mission of the Foundation is supporting the agency’s education initiatives aimed at getting the next generation of young Arkansans unplugged and engaged in the outdoors.


Impact Fund is a new program aligning donors with their passion for conservation. The program leverages donor dollars with federal conservation grants utilized by AGFC — many times at a 3-to-1 ratio – or higher!

The Corporate Partnership Program initiated in 2022 is designed to showcase select companies to benefit conservation across Arkansas. Doing so gives companies the opportunity to support AGFC initiatives and connect brands to conservation.
