Donate To The Western Native Trout Initiative

The future of native trout conservation depends directly on the generosity of individuals like you who care about sustaining healthy western watersheds.  When you give to WNTI, 100% of your donation benefits native trout – there is no overhead or administrative fees.  We leverage all donations with other sources of funding to support on-the-ground, locally led projects.  Click here to download our brochure.  Please consider one or more of the following giving options below.


Donate Directly to Our Cause:   The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Foundation for Western Fish and Wildlife is WNTI’s 501c3 fiscal sponsor and accepts tax-exempt donations on our behalf.  To make an online donation to WNTI, please click on the donation button.
