STEVE SMITH ENDOWMENT

The Steve Smith Endowment will provide a financial base for the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation, giving it the ability to embark on projects, programs, and services bolstering the mission of the Foundation in its goal of supporting the needs of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.  The Endowment was created by AGFF Board Member Witt Stephens, who announced a challenge gift for the fund, vowing to match every dollar raised up to $150,000!   Please click on the link below to make your gift.

Hall of Fame

Each year, the Foundation hosts the Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame Banquet, recognizing men and women from across the state who have been instrumental in expanding the use and enjoyment of Arkansas's outdoor resources and broadening conservation education. The proceeds from this event support the year-around work of the Foundation.

 

Approximately 1,200 people attend the annual banquet that is held at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock each August.  The program includes a live and silent auction, dinner,  induction of Hall of Fame nominees, and the presentation of the Legacy Award, selected by the Foundation's Nominating Committee.  The Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame began in 1992 and has inducted 90 members thus far.
