“If we were to succeed in educating and influencing our local communities in the value of sustainable hunting, we will need to start by giving. Only then will the true value of hunting be realized. ” - Author unknown.
The John X Foundation has a rich history of involving hunters in our local communities. Since that first SCI Blue Bag, many hunters have subsequently joined in the Blue Bag program. Many have brought blue bags stuffed to the point of bursting; some have simply filled extra space in their luggage, while others find it easier to donate cash, which the foundation intern uses to purchase items on their behalf. 100% of all donations go directly to targeted projects.
The number and amount of donations continues to grow substantially each year. Through targeted coordinated donations the John X Foundation can focus on bigger projects that impact many more than ever before.
The Foundation accepts gifts of all types and sizes. Past donations have included everything from school supplies, tooth brushes, water bottles, blankets, toys, building/construction supplies, cash, and much, much more.
Many of our past donors have enjoyed the privilege of delivering their gifts in person. There is simply nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s eyes or a teacher’s face light up when you personally handover your contribution/s. Time permitting, we will make arrangements so that you can personally go onsite to touch the lives of those you are helping. We highly recommend this as one of the most rewarding parts of your safari experience.
For a personalized answer to all your questions with regards to the John X Foundation, please feel free to contact Trish directly. She will be more than glad to assist with contribution options on the most current projects.

What People Are Saying
"Gracias por ser parte de mi primer safari en Africa y el poderlo compartir con mi mejor amigo Andres lo hizo muy especial, gracias por todo y nos veremos was pronto que tarde."~ Gustavo Ruiz '12 from Spain
"WOW! That’s all that comes to mind. An absolutely incredible hunt. I could not believe the abundance and diversity of game to hunt and observe. Every time I turned around Mike and Themba would point out a different animal or bird. I have no idea how Mike spots so many animals. Let alone
identify and judge trophy quality at 1000 yards! John X Safaris is a top notch operation and made me feel at home. The staff from one end to the other was accommodating. More importantly the smiles and laughs started at breakfast and lasted until the last man left the pub. What a great experience – Thanks!"
Carl, unbelievable safari! This safari was to introduce my son to hunting Africa and share with my wife Haylee the beauty and splendor that is Africa and you did that in spades as expected. I wasn't sure how you could have topped my previous 2 safaris with you but you did. The 54" Kudu and monster Eland are ones for the ages! I have said it before and I will say it again: my friend you and your team at John X Safaris are simply the best. See you in Tanzania in 2017~ Steve Travis '15 from
