FFI1K - Join 1000 Stewards of FFI

We are looking for 1000 members and key stakeholders to join and pledge to contribute $500 per year for the next 5 years.  The funds raised by the FFI1K are vital to providing a solid foundation on which to continue to grow and expand our mission and to support:

  • Spearheading projects that improve our fisheries and protect our fishing opportunities
  • The FFI Learning Center’s wealth of fly fishing knowledge and resources
  • Camaraderie among anglers built at our annual fair and other events

FFI President's Club

The Board of Directors established the FFI President’s Club to recognize and encourage major giving to the organization. The funds received will be used to support operations of the organization, thus providing for a stable, long-term cash flow and may not be further restricted or directed.  The President’s Club is divided into four categories: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze, recognizing various levels of gifting. In a bow to the American tradition of budgeting, the program allows for a pledge satisfied by yearly and monthly payment plans.

Memorial Gifts

Families or friends may recognize a member by establishing a Memorial in the person's name.  FFI will recoginize the person through donor recogniztion efforts and display a memorial piece at HQ office.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts may be available through the company where you are employed.  If you give to FFI, please check with your employer to determine if a matching gift may be available.  Many times it is a simple form with proof of payment that is required to increase your impact.  If you have questions please contact FFI Headquarters by e-mailing operations@flyfishersinternational.org or call 406-222-9369 Ext 4.

PLANNED GIVING

It’s easy to give to the organization a donation through estate planning. Steps to accomplish the task include:

  • Consult your attorney or estate planner to name the FFI as a beneficiary.
  • Designate an amount you wish to give.
  • Provide a directive of how the funds are to be used in your will if desired.
  • Provide a letter to FFI providing the information, including contact information of your representative. Keep this information current with the FFI office.

Please contact FFI's President and CEO if you have questions about planned giving.

Stock Donations

When one donates appreciated stock to a charity, provided it has been held for more than one year, the donor can deduct the full value of the stock at the date of the donation and not have to report the gain as taxable income. This gives the taxpayer a donation at the fair market value of the stock, not the original cost.  Please send e-mail to FFI's President and CEO if you have questions about the program.

I-Give

Sign up for I-Give and retailers are donating part of the sales to the FFI when you designate our organization.  Be sure and log into your I-Give account before you start shopping.

Amazon Smile

Make a donation to the FFI every time you make a purchse on Amazon.com.  Set up an account with Amazon Smile and link it to your Amazon account.  When you buy something Amazon Smile will donate part of the sale to the FFI.
