Outfitter Dues Incentive Program
For every dollar a member raises on their own or through the IOGA office, 25% of
the net return to IOGA may be applied towards the member's dues. Monies received
by the IOGA office during a fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) will be credited towards
the outfitter's dues for the following IOGA fiscal year only. Monies cannot be carried
over to a second year. This includes the Dollars for Outdoors program, trips donated
for IOGA fundraising events, SCI national and regular donated trips. It also includes
new members, cash contributions or grants from organizations such as FNAWS, SCI
and RMEF that an outfitter member obtains for IOGA.
Dollars for Outdoors
This is a very simple way to raise funds for IOGA. You simply add a "voluntary"
contribution on your invoice for a specified amount, incorporate the IOGA mission
and be certain to advise that the contribution is NOT tax deductible. You collect
the funds and send them to IOGA at the most convenient time for you (monthly, quarterly,
Example: "To help conserve and enhance the quality of outdoor experiences on Idaho's
lands and waters, (your business name) adds $1 (or chosen amount) per day voluntary
donation to go to the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association, a non-profit business
trade organization. This donation is not tax deductible. Let us know if you choose
not to contribute and this amount will be deducted from the cost of your trip."
25% of any funds received by IOGA during a fiscal year (July 1-June 30) are credited
towards your dues for the next fiscal year. This is a win-win-win for the outfitter,
client and IOGA.
Since the program began in 2000, 12-15 outfitters have participated each year raising
over $49,000 total for IOGA. Each of them will tell you how simple it has been to
participate in this program. Many of them simply added a line on their invoice (after
the trip cost, taxes, and use fees) with the voluntary contribution amount before
the invoice is totaled. Can you imagine the funds that could be raised for IOGA
if all of our members participated in this program?
IOGA encourages all outfitter members to participate in this very simple program.
