Get wild by donating to the Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund through our state tax check-off. The Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund relies on donations from you to manage habitat and conduct research to benefit the 750 species it protects. These wildlife species and their habitats are essential to our quality of life, from improving environmental health to providing opportunities to see beautiful and unique animals across the state.

For every $5 you donate, the DNR receives $14 to care for Indiana’s rare and endangered wildlife, thanks to a federal matching program. To donate on your Indiana state taxes using paper forms, use the Schedule 5/Schedule IN-Donate form.

Watch this video for more details or donate online. If you plan to use an online tax preparation program, you will be prompted to donate at the end of the filing process. If filing through a tax preparer, direct your preparer to the Schedule 5/IN-Donate (also referred to as IN Schedule 5-Credits).
