The Family Campers & RVers Wildlife Refuge Inc. operates on donations received from individuals, chapters and organizations. These donations may be used as deductions from taxable income. The donations are then used for Wildlife Grants. The program awards grants to many worthwhile wildlife conservation projects in the U.S. and Canada. These grants may be applied for through the National Family Campers & RVers Wildlife Director. Wildlife Grants must be mailed by USPS to the National Wildlife Directors by May 20. The grant application, the organization’s proof of 501(c)3 status, and a letter from the organization must be mailed along with any other supporting documents that you feel will help the program get a better understanding about the organization.
