The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, or TRCP, is a non-profit (501(c)(3)) coalition of conservation organizations, labor unions, and individual members that works to preserve the traditions of hunting and fishing.[1]

History[edit]

In 2000, Trout Unlimited extended their tax-exempt status to include a new organization known as the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Alliance (TRCA).[2] Trout Unlimited, in addition to its fiscal sponsorship of the alliance, also funnelled funds to the TRCA from the Pew Charitable Trust. This arrangement continued until 2002 when the TRCA applied for their own tax-exempt status, began receiving funding from the Turner Foundation, and changed its name to the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership. On December 15, 2009, the TRCP's president and CEO, George Cooper, stepped down after holding the position for three years.[3]
