20th Century funding has been a tremendous asset to field trial clubs all across the country. Following is a short description of benefits the West Kentucky Wildlife Management Area and clubs using the area have received.
Since 2007 the area has used 20th Century funding to improve habitat in several ways. Use of heavy equipment was one of the first ways funding was used in cooperation with the area management team.
Thanks to AFTCA members who have already sent in short stories and photos describing how their clubs have used money awarded by the 20th Century Fund for improvements to their field trial grounds. We’ll post more stories over the summer. If your club has received money from the 20th Century Fund, please share your success story.
The 20th Century Fund is a division of the AFTCA that, on a yearly basis, distributes funding to member clubs utilizing grounds and facilities throughout the United States.
This funding is generally in the amount of $18,000 – $20,000 total. In the past 12 years, over $228,000 has been awarded to enhance field trials and bird populations.
