The Foundation's mission as set forth in Robert H. Welder's will is to conduct research and education in wildlife management and conservation.
Since 1954 the Rob & Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation has operated as a 501©(3) operating foundation. Throughout this time we have funded wildlife research and conservation education and carried out the daily operations of the Foundation and Refuge through this original foundation. For over 50 years the Welder Wildlife Foundation has provided excellence in research and education throughout Texas and the nation. We eagerly look forward to the next half century of providing outstanding wildlife research and conservation education to the public. Rarely during this time have we sought outside funding for education or research projects and never for operations. In 2009 the Rob & Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation Trustees formed a new, non-profit foundation - The Rob & Bessie Welder Wildlife Conservation Foundation, a 501©(3) charitable foundation.
