Foresters’ and Science Fund

Open from Wednesday evening on November 15 to Friday afternoon on November 17

This year’s convention raffle and silent auction will support both the Foresters’ Fund and Kurt Gottschalk Science Fund (KGSF). While the Foresters’ Fund assists local SAF units in achieving the goals of the Society, the KGSF supports the development and dissemination of scientific findings and new technology for natural resource professionals to facilitate science-informed management.
All funds raised will be split 50/50 between the two funds. Additionally, the KGSF portion will be matched by a generous contribution from the estate of W.D. Hagenstein.

Items Sought for Raffle and Silent Auction

Items such as artwork, forestry tools, books, hand-crafted items, specialty foods, gift cards, or baskets, and more will help support these important programs. 
Please let Raffle and Auction Chair Andy Mason (571-214-5536 or acmason1954 know of your plans to donate items.
