Our chapter was proud to partner with the Mesa Hunter Education Team and to sponsor a Hunter Education class that concluded on Saturday Sept 23, 2017 at Rio Salado Sportsman's Club for the student Field Day activity.
Thanks to your support and the hard work of the instructors, 97 graduates have joined the ranks of ethical and safe hunters here in Arizona.

Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated.

Purple Heart Veteran's Fishing Trip
In June 2013 Phoenix SCI participated in an adventure to take 12 wounded warriors from our state of Arizona to San Carlos Mexico on a fishing extravaganza. In conjunction with other supporters we provided the outdoor experience of a lifetime for these wounded warriors. They fished for Dorado, Marlin, and Sail Fish.
SCI Lion Fund Donation
The African lion. King of beasts, symbol of Safari Club International. Humans have instinctive admiration of and respect for this majestic creature. When encountered on a hunt, it is a duel of predator vs. predator. It has been that way since the beginning. Without our help, it may soon end. The Phoenix Chapter was the second largest contributor of all SCI chapters for the Save The Lion Fund. SCI has raised over 1 million dollars in an effort to defend the African Lion from a global anti-hunting onslaught.
American Wilderness Leadership School
Established in 1976 with the vision of providing educators with a useful hands-on experience that they can bring home to their classrooms, AWLS has provided an accredited wildlife management program for 5,473 teachers who reach more than a million students annually, and a challenging experience for 1,338 students. The Phoenix Chapter provided funding to send a teacher from Surprise, AZ to participate in the AWLS Camp in Jackson, WY. The purpose of this project is to provide educators with outdoor skills and educational tools to bring to life in their classrooms. For more information about the AWLS, click here.
International Wildlife Museum
2013 marked the 25th year for the SCIF museum in Tucson. We are proud to have been the only Diamond Level Sponsor ($5,000) of the upcoming renovations to the museum.
You might not be aware of it, but 30% of your Phoenix Chapter's net profits from the annual fundraiser are donated to the SCI National organization. Your Chapter is actually chartered as a 501c-3 non-profit, under the charter of the SCI Foundation.
