The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation (LAWFF)

LAWFF is the nonprofit that raises funds and generates support for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries (LDWF). We assist the Department with habitat conservation, youth recruitment, environmental education and training, natural resource research and management, regulation enforcement, and financial assistance to numerous LDWF projects and programs.

The Foundation is a non-profit public, charitable foundation, tax exempt under Section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation was formed to provide a means for individuals and corporations to become partners with the Department and Commission in the challenge of conserving Louisiana's wildlife and fish resources.

LAWFF receives no funding from the State of Louisiana, nor the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Contributions come solely from individual and corporate donors.

Individuals and corporations can become LAWFF partners by contributing to the Foundation in a variety of ways, all of which are tax deductible. Donations of property and money are accepted both as undedicated contributions or for specific projects and programs.

The Foundation's Board is committed to a simple operating style - working as a partner with contributors who donate property, services or funds for specific projects and programs as well as contributions for general conservation use. The Foundation identifies conservation problems and offers solutions through partnerships and leveraging financial resources.
