The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance presented four valued partners with its Lifetime Achievement Award at its Fundraising Gala. The award not only recognizes their financial contributions of more than $250,000 each but also their commitment to the USA’s mission.
Pure Fishing is a staunch supporter of the USA’s Take Kids Fishing Day and other youth outreach events. Since 2017, the company has donated more than 10,000 rod-and-reel combos to help introduce children to the joys of fishing. Pure Fishing also donated time and product to a multi-partner undertaking to build a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk and fishing pier at the Suncoast Youth Conservation Center in Apollo Beach, Florida—the USA’s 200th conservation project.
The American Income Life (AIL) company is a long-time USA partner. Through its Labor Advisory Board, representing more than 50 international union leaders, AIL has provided annual financial support to the USA. Of equal importance, AIL agents across the country have volunteered their time to help run USA community outreach and fundraising events in their communities. This resource of experienced local volunteer support has been invaluable.
Segal Consulting/Segal Marco Advisors has a long-standing tradition of supporting the USA through its shooting tour and conservation dinner program. They routinely contribute their team sponsorship to military servicemembers—a patriotic gesture that enables service members to participate at no charge and enjoy a day of outdoor recreation and fellowship with union members.
The Provost & Umphrey Law firm is USA’s newest Lifetime Partner and first Platinum Conservation Sponsor. In 2018, they pledged one million dollars over five years to support the USA’s Work Boots on the Ground program. The growth in the number of USA conservation projects as well as their complexity is a direct result of support for the USA’s most important program.
“Like the relationships with our charter unions, founding partners and other allies, corporate partners like Provost Umphrey, Segal Group, American Income Life and Pure Fishing help the USA maintain its record-setting growth as we harness the passion, power and skills of union volunteers to preserve North America’s outdoor heritage,” said USA CEO and Executive Director Scott Vance. “We are deeply grateful for their support and look forward to working with them as we continue to change lives.”
