United Special Sportsman Alliance, Inc. (USSA) is a 501(c) (3) non-profit national wish granting charity that specializes in sending critically ill and disabled youth and disabled veterans on the outdoor adventure of their dreams! USSA adventures give our youth and veterans something to look forward to, and help sustain them in their time of need!

USSA is composed of a 100% volunteer staff from all walks of life, bonded together by a common love for our fellow mankind and a deep respect and appreciation of our world's natural resources. By working cooperatively with caring "Adventure" donors as well as generous individual and corporate sponsors, USSA has made a significant impact on the lives of thousands of children, disabled veterans and their families. The public's image of all sportsmen is enhanced, through this valuable community service and new lifelong friendships are made! To learn more about USSA read on.
Ron Johnson - Event Specialist
My Name is Ron Johnson I grew up in a small rural community on a dairy farm were hunting was always part of life, and now I am a General Manager of a LP Gas Dealership that serves residential and commercial accounts.
I am married to a wonderful woman that allows me to continue to hunt along with our three sons Shaun is our oldest Brandon is our Middle and Wesley our youngest who also has Down's Syndrome and that is why we got involved in USSA.
I not only help with different hunting events but try to help Brigid with day to day operations of the charity and to give back to help those who might not be able to have the opportunity that I take for granted it is so fulfilling to see a disabled child in any outdoor adventure being a hunting fishing or camping event having fun and not thinking about what is happening in their life; that is so rewarding to me.

Safari Club International Foundation
Since 2000, SCI Foundation (SCIF) has provided $47 million to conservation, wildlife education, and humanitarian programs around the world. Growth of SCIF has continued to gain momentum through charitable donations from SCI members and direct grants from local chapters and the SCI organization. A recent effort that just completed its fund-raising drive is the Hunter Legacy Fund which is a dedicated funding source for wildlife conservation . This endowment was created by one hundred individuals and corporations, dedicating a pledge of $100,000 to create a $10 million endowment to ensure conservation programs of SCIF will continue long into the future. A similar effort kicked off in 2008 to create an endowment for conservation education.
With recent expenditures exceeding $5 million annually, SCI Foundation has continued to promote science-based conservation through wildlife research, capacity building in governments, youth and teacher education, and humanitarian programs which show the importance of the hunting community in society. A project nearing completion, called the "White Book", will showcase nearly 150 conservation projects where SCIF has made major contributions to the world of wildlife management.
