Donate to Fish and Wildlife programs

In addition to donating your time as a volunteer, there are several other ways that you can donate to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

  • Youth Outdoors Initiative: Support youth educational programs with a donation through WDFW's licensing system. Scroll down to the Youth Outdoors Initiative Donation option and add to your cart. Your donation will help expand outdoor skills and encourage stewardship of nature for Washington youth.  
  • Disabled Veterans: Support Washington resident disabled veterans by donating money to help offset the cost of their hunting and fishing licenses through WDFW’s licensing system. Scroll down to the Disabled Veteran Donation and add to your cart.
  • Karelian Bear Dog (KBD) Program: The Karelian Bear Dog Program is 100% supported by private donations. Because this is a budget-neutral program, no funds are paid from the WDFW agency budget. By donating today, you can help support the mission of these hardworking dogs. More information is available on the KBD webpage.
  • Planned Giving: If you’re interested in talking with the Department about providing a cash or real estate donation, or to discuss estate planning, please email the Department’s Fiscal Office at
