Giving Tuesday is Just a Few Weeks Away

 
 
 
 
HFF is excited to once again participate in the annual #GivingTuesday—a global day of giving—when nonprofits, families, businesses, and retailers come together to transform the way we think about the giving season.

HFF's generous board members have again agreed to match donations made on #GivingTuesday.  This means that you can double your gift on #GivingTuesday, November 29th.

We invite you to show your commitment to the Henry’s Fork with a year-end gift that will kick-start the upcoming year of protecting the wild trout of the Henry’s Fork.

Thank You for a Successful San Francisco Reception

 
 
 
 
The Henry’s Fork Foundation’s San Francisco was a great success! Thank you to our dedicated supportive members! Special thanks to Yvon Chouinard and Nelson Ishiyama as our keynote speakers and special guests Chris Korich and world casting champion, Maxine McCormick. We had a record turnout and a fun filled night full of great auction items and memories made visiting with friends to support a great cause. Thank you to our San Francisco planning committee for their hard work and dedication!

We appreciate everyone who attended and all those who donate and show their support to the Henry’s Fork Foundation.
