NWTF Offers New Membership Incentive for Golden Anniversary

EDGEFIELD, S.C. — As a part of its 50th anniversary celebration, the National Wild Turkey Federation is offering a new way to make an immediate impact on wild turkey conservation and the preservation of our hunting heritage — the $50 for the 50th  campaign.

The newly announced membership drive offers two memberships for only $50, allowing current members to renew their membership for one year while gifting the second membership to a friend, or gift two memberships to two friends.

The NWTF will celebrate its 50th anniversary throughout 2023, and the organization has set new and ambitious goals to accomplish during the calendar year, one of which is to achieve a membership base of 250,000 adult members by the end of the year.

“The $50 for the 50th will make it easier for our volunteers and current members to welcome their friends and family into the flock,” said Elisa Daly, director of national events and membership marketing. “Our 50th anniversary is about positioning the NWTF to deliver its mission for another 50 years and beyond. With a membership base of 250,000-plus, we will reach new heights in conserving our cherished bird and leaving a legacy to be carried on by future generations of sportsmen and women.” 

The NWTF’s continued success relies upon its ability to increase and expand its impact from coast to coast and everywhere in between. Integral to its mission are new members joining the flock and ensuring the passion for conservation and the outdoor lifestyle lives on for generations to come.

NWTF state and local chapters, volunteers, members and partners are encouraged to utilize the $50 for the 50th toolkit that provides numerous assets to promote the membership drive to local communities and social media audiences.
