Just over two years ago Pheasants Forever launched its first-ever capital campaign, Call of the Uplands.
As it turned out the timing could not have been better. We had just come off of 2020, where the pandemic virtually ended all event fundraising, which was our main source of revenue. That year was a record low for generating revenue. It was clearly time to pivot and Call of the Uplands provided the opportunity to do just that. 2021 came along and we were still unable to host events of any size and auctions were out of the question. We got busy, pursuing other sources of revenue such as grants and major gifts. Low and behold, without hosting events in 2021, we ended up with our best year to date in fundraising. In fact 2021 was our second biggest in 28 years!
A big thanks and congratulations goes out to our leaders, those that stepped up and became Pheasants Forever’s Champions of the Uplands.
A total of 29 folks pledged or donated $10,000 to become a Patron and an additional 8 individuals pledged or donated $25,0000 for a total of over $500,000.
In total, the Calgary Chapter raised $1.4 Million dollars under the banner of Call of the Uplands in two short years. Today, we are proud and pleased to celebrate our Champions of the Uplands, who stood up and answered the call.
