Don’t forget to “Do Something Wild” when filling out your Pennsylvania income tax return form and make a donation to the Wild Resource Conservation Fund.
While research projects are supported with money from the Growing Greener program, voluntary donations are essential to pay for administration costs and for education and outreach programs (including Keystone WILD Notes), because the Fund receives no General Fund money from the state.
The three main sources of donations are the tax checkoff, the sale of conservation license plates, and proceeds from the sales of videos, books and other materials developed by the Fund. Of those, voluntary donations made on the state income tax form are by far the most important.
Anyone receiving a tax refund is eligible to make a donation.
So look for the WRCP logo featuring the saw-whet owl on the tax form and please “Do something wild!”
