The Fred Waara Chapter of Trout Unlimited requires local fund raising to achieve its mission.

It costs money to restore a riverbank, to operate a fish tank so students learn the importance of clean water to stream ecology, and to provide equipment for youth fly fishing classes and our summer youth camp. The Fred Waara Chapter of Trout Unlimited (FWCTU) can’t accomplish its goals without your help. There are three main ways to help our chapter financially: individual donations, employer matching funds, and becoming a valued business partner.

FWCTU must be self-funded for these programs because there are no other outside sources of funding. National Trout Unlimited membership dues are not shared with our Chapter for funding our local conservation activities, youth programs or general operating expenses.

All money donated to FWCTU directly funds and supports all conservation and education activities of the chapter in the Upper Peninsula.

For individual donations, please make your check payable to the Fred Waara Chapter TU and mail to:
