FOWWSC Mission Statement: “The mission of FOWWSC is to introduce, educate and promote conservation of our natural resources with emphasis on the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, archery, shooting and wildlife habitat management to the youth, women, and physically challenged of Michigan”.

100% of any contribution supports our mission as the Board of Directors (officers) are voluntary and receives no compensation from FOWWSC or WWSC.

Initially (2012) WWSC loaned FOWWSC $5,000 to establish the organization as arranged by the founder Rady Delgado. As of February 8, 2018, the entire loan amount plus interest was repaid to WWSC. The club’s generosity is acknowledged as vital to the ongoing success of FOWWSC.
