We offer two types of 2% Certification:
Individual and Business
2% Individual Members are private citizens of any country or creed that commit to giving 1% of their time (21hrs/yr) and 1% of their gross income to fish and wildlife conservation causes. You can learn more about 2% Individual Certification here: Individual Membership
2% Business Members are companies that are legally recognized by their local government as a business and who give 1% of one person's time (21hrs/yr) and at least 1% of their gross annual sales. Many of our business members give well above 5% of their sales dollars to conservation causes annually. You can learn more about 2% Business Certification Certification here: Business Membership
For both types of certification, how time and dollars are donated is entirely up to the individual or business. We do not touch or define how donations must be used - we certify that the entity has committed to donating them and that they are. You may choose any conservation cause that matters to you - giving back should be personal!
People who care about fish and wildlife are engaging with conservation causes around the world. Here is a map of our membership (let it load):
Businesses that support fish and wildlife conservation efforts deserve to be recognized. It doesn't matter whether you make backpacks, apps, recurve bows, blueprints, coffee, have a podcast or whatever startup you may be brewing in your garage... If you give back, people should know. Not just for your sake, but for the causes that matter to you and your customers.
Does your business care about the future of hunting and fishing?
It’s time to make the commitment to give back 1% of your time and 1% of your annual sales to fish and wildlife. It’s time to start giving a damn and for your customers to give a damn too.
2% for Conservation was founded with the generous support of Sitka Gear, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Wild Sheep Foundation.
