JOHN X FOUNDATION

Hunters by nature have a proud legacy of giving back to the passion they hold so dear. The very act of hunting is arguably the finest form of conservation in the world today. In saying this we recognize the necessity of not only giving back by creating a sustainable value for wildlife, but taking responsibility for the survival of this fine tradition we call hunting.

Through this necessity, on a bitterly cold Nebraska night in January 2009, the initial John X Foundation was born in one of our hunter’s trophy rooms. Our good friend, Chris Petersen, had been on numerous previous hunts with John X Safaris, and wanted to “give” something back to the communities and areas he’d enjoyed hunting from before.

Our approach was one where humanitarian initiative combined with education and sustainable wildlife projects would ensure the survival of hunting for generations to come. Through coordinated contributions by our hunters, John X Safaris has been able to spearhead both humanitarian and conservation causes on an annual basis.

Since then the John X Foundation has grown in leaps and bounds – a true testament to the proud hunters that join us on safari each year.

So what can you do to be a part of the John X Foundation?
Quite simply – get involved!

The John X Foundation consists of two main causes, namely Humanitarian and Conservation.

You can help in the following ways:
  • Coordinate providing supplies and items of need through SCI’s Blue Bag program or similar.
  • Make a specific donation or pledge (any size will help) to a targeted John X Foundation humanitarian or conservation project.
  • Give us a budget – we’ll go shopping on your behalf prior to your arrival.
  • Adding a donation to your account with John X Safaris at the end of your safari.
  • Donate to our cause at a Safari Show if you’re not joining us on safari in the near future.
  • Spend some time as a volunteer or get involved with our causes while on safari.
  • Become a vocal advocate for our causes – Stand up for hunting and educate those who see little value in sustainability.
Tax Deductible Documentation – You will have to determine if your donations are tax deductible. The John X Foundation will be happy to assist in providing you with documentation regarding your contributions.

Memories of crawling through thorn bushes, mud and laying on ant piles waiting for a huge horned animal to step out into the clearing. Taking numerous magnificent trophies and and hanging out with the great members of John X Safaris and Gunwerks team will be memories that last. The nightly stories with the gang were awesome. Keep doing what you do...
