The foundation was established in 2007 to provide financial benefits and other support to California game wardens and their families. It has provided $180,000 for scholarships, medical emergencies, training grants, and other awards to wardens for exemplary service.
One of the first beneficiaries was warden Bob Orange of Plumas County, whose wife had a horse riding accident that forced her to rely on a wheelchair. The foundation paid to help retrofit their home for wheelchair access.
Local residents who serve on the foundation's board include Ned Spieker of Atherton, Peter Stent of Woodside, Judd Hanna, part-time resident of Half Moon Bay, and Steve McCormick, Moore Foundation director.
Major donors will be recognized on a plaque to be displayed at the headquarters of the Department of Fish and Game in Sacramento.
