How will my donation be used to help gray wolves?

The 06 Legacy is committed to advocating for the protection of wolves and restoration to their ancestral lands, investing in six key areas to advance the cause: education, inspiration, awareness, endorsement, resources and documentation.

Education: By educating the public about the true nature of wolves and their essential role in sustaining healthy ecosystems, we are helping to change the narrative around wolves to respect and coexistence.

Inspiration: We take inspiration from famous wolves and share their life stories to encourage the public to be a voice for wolves and act on their behalf.

Awareness: By raising awareness of upcoming elections, candidates, and the consequences to wolves, we are helping the public recognize that elections have big implications for gray wolf populations.

Endorsement: To protect wolves, we are endorsing pro-wolf candidates at the state and federal level who will fight for their survival.

Resources: We have a world-class curated list of wolf-related books.

Documentation: To ensure every Yellowstone wolf is known to today's and future generations of wolf advocates, the 06 Legacy supports the important research and documentation done by the archivists at the Yellowstone Wolf Family Tree on — which is a free educational resource featuring the life stories and genealogy of over 1,200 Yellowstone wolves.

What is The 06 Legacy and what is its mission?

The 06 Legacy is a 50(c)(4) nonprofit that seeks to protect America’s gray wolves from trophy killing and restore wolf populations through awareness, education, and endorsement of candidates.

Why is The 06 Legacy a 501(c)(4) nonprofit?

The 06 Legacy is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(4) organization. As such, contributions, donations, and gifts to The 06 Legacy are not tax deductible. They support our efforts to engage in the political process directly through endorsing pro-wolf candidates for election and lobbying on behalf of wolves. Although decisions regarding the management of wolf populations should be scientifically based and non-biased, the reality is the outlook for wolves is politically driven. Every vote that counts for wolves will help towards safeguarding their future.
