Pathfinder Grants available to Chapters

Pathfinderfundshnt4evr121213Pathfinder Co-Chairs Bill & Vicki Swan are pleased to announce that nearly $23,000 dollars has been reimbursed to SCI Chapters that have held warrior or pathfinder events this year. SCIF, through Humanitarian Services, has set aside $50,000 to promote Chapter functions for disabled hunters, terminally ill children or soldiers returning from battle.

In order for a chapter to qualify for these funds, it must sponsor and/or host an event for one of those mentioned above. The chapter has to furnish a profit/loss statement, a write-up about the event, and show where it was publicized in the media. These funds are reimbursements and not matching funds. Reimbursement cannot exceed the actual expense to the Chapter.

We strongly suggest that your Chapter submit a write up with photos of the event to Safari Times and for posting on the Hunt Forever blog and the Hunt Now newsletter. For more information contact Stephanie Gray in the Humanitarian Services Department.
