SCI Project Funding

SCI Wisconsin has had a long standing tradition of raising money in order to give back and preserve what we love so much, hunting.  Over the past 41 years, SCI Wisconsin has raised $3,119, 127 from various fundraising projects and donations.  Our organization gives back to areas that focus on education, humanitarian efforts, hunters’ rights, and conservation.  We support many local area organizations as well as supporting the efforts of SCI National.  We have helped with funding scholarships, the National Archery in the Schools Program, Hunts for Disabled & Terminally Ill Children, All Terrain Wheelchairs to be used at hunting events, Summer Camp sponsorships, and more.  

Our greatest commitment over the past several years was to the Boy Scouts of America Potowatomi Council Shooting Sports Complex at Camp Long Lake.  Initially, SCI Wisconsin committed $63,000 (in 2010) for the development of rifle and pistol ranges.  This project included construction of an open sided shelter for shooting, staging and storage over a concrete slab.  Earth berms, fencing and electrical installations were also constructed.   In 2011, an additional $53,000 was approved and paid in five annual installments.  This phase included the development of a shotgun 5-stand, skeet and trap range area.  This project included a trap house, two skeet towers, concrete paths and shooting stands, mechanical throwers, lighting and fencing.  Hundreds of scouts have been able to learn and practice their skills at this state-of-the-art facility.

The Big Al Fund was established in 2008 by Rick Rollo, in honor of his father Al, who was an avid hunter.  Al passed away due to cancer, which cut short his sporting pursuits. Rick runs an annual pheasant hunt event to raise funds for hunting or fishing trips for physically or terminally ill children, adults or veterans.  He then turns all of the proceeds over to the Wisconsin Chapter to be used exclusively towards requests that fall within Big Al’s guidelines. 

Whether it be a dream hunt or fishing trip, Big Al smiles down on the hunter as he or she pursues the sport that Al so loved.  Since the fund was started in 2008, it has raised over $151,000.00!!

In addition, this event was very well attended and helped to spread the message of environmental stewardship, conservation, and responsible hunting and fishing practices.

  • Thank you so much for selecting me to receive the Safari Club International—Wisconsin Chapter Scholarship. With this generous scholarship I can continue my education at UW–Stevens Point and pursue the many opportunities and knowledge that the university has to offer, all which will go toward my Bachelor's degree and contribute to my career after college. After college I plan on studying and banding birds of prey, so that I can help maintain their wellbeing and make sure they continue being a part of a balanced and healthy ecosystem. This award makes that dream all that much closer, and it reinforces my passion and drive to pursue a wildlife degree so I can work in nature and be around the wildlife I love.

  • PJ Jacobs and Ben Franklin Junior High School 7th graders traveled to the Boston School Forest between May 1 and May 30 for a day of outdoor learning. Students actively applied concepts of the forces of motion while taking part in archery and high ropes course activities in the school forest setting. The objectives achieved for this project included a) Provide kids a day of learning and fun in the outdoors b) Teach students the 11 steps of archery, participate in shooting arrows, and increase their skill, and c) Apply classroom content related to forces of motion to archery. Thank you Safari Club International for making this happen!

    Karla Lockman Program Leader, Boston School Forest
  • Thank you for your support in donating $1000 to the Weston Archery Club. With your donation, Weston students and the community will have the opportunity to learn and participate in the sport of archery close to home. This is important to us due to the fact that many of our students come from low income households where activities such as archery would never be considered unless offered through a school or club setting close to home.

    Andy Niemeyer Weston Archery Club Advisor
  • Once again, we appreciate SCI’s generosity. The SCTP program and the National tournament in particular provides life-long memories for the athletes, coaches, and parents. The experiences are extremely rewarding! Thank you for helping to make this year possible for Marquette’s team.

  • I am writing to express our sincere thanks for your generous support of our participation in the NASP. A number of years ago I introduced this program to another school in Appleton, Wisconsin, where I was serving as principal and teaching physical education. The children there thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn the lifelong sport of archery. My students here in Wausau are excited about this new opportunity and cannot wait to get started. I know that they will find the same enjoyment as my previous students and I am so very thankful for the opportunity that your organization has afforded our students through your generous gift.

    Ethan Hutchinson Our Savior's Evangelical Lutheran School, Principal
