Grants in Aid


Based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the Eastern Chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation is a 501(C) (3) non-profit organization. Our main goal is to assist the Wild Sheep Foundation to promote the management of, and safeguard against, the extinction of all species of wild sheep native to the continent of North America. The Eastern Chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service. Our sole source of funding is a 2 day expo and convention which will be held in February at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. While we are a chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation, our emphasis is on all things hunting and we strive to have something for everyone. Through our committees and Board of Directors, we have complete control over which projects we fund, and while we work in conjunction with the Wild Sheep Foundation (our parent organization), we maintain our freedom to fund those projects we feel are most deserving.
