The Dallas Safari Club is proud to introduce the Frontline Foundation, ‘Standing up for those who stand in front!’
The DSC Frontline Foundation, a Texas non-profit corporation, was started by a group of dedicated DSC members with the support and encouragement of DSC. Contributions to the Foundation are deductible under Section 170 of the Code.
The Foundation's Board of Directors consists of DSC members and includes people involved in the professional hunting industry as well as those who appropriate and respect the risk that professional hunters, outfitters, guides and their assistants face on a daily basis. The mission of the DSC Foundation is to provide financial relief to professional hunters and their assistants who are killed or seriously injured in the course of providing professional hunting services or anti-poaching activities. The mission of the Foundation was expanded to include a seperate anti-poaching fund to provide financial relief to government employees killed in the course of providing anti-poaching activities. The individuals we seek to help are often on the frontline of hunts and therefore exposed to the dangers inherent in hunting. These same individuals are unlikely to have adequate, or any, health insurance. They are unlikely to have life insurance or disability coverage. As a result, a serious injury has the potential to be even more devastating to these individuals than to most of the rest of us. The death of a primary breadwinner could have equally dire consequences for most of the people we seek to help. [Read more
