United Country, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Renew Strategic Partnership
Continued Relationship Will Bring Global Awareness to Conservation Efforts

Share |
March 11, 2014 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – Recreational property and land conservation go hand in hand. No two organizations know this better than United Country Real Estate and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. With this understanding, the two firms have announced they will renew and extend their strategic partnership for three additional years.

“Our country is approaching an historic transfer of land, and we believe this transition could have a significant impact the future of elk in the United States,” said M. David Allen, president and chief executive officer of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. “The team at United Country shares these concerns, and we are proud to continue our relationship with them.”

Besides allowing the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to tap into United Country’s database of over 400,000 buyers for conservation-minded land enthusiasts, this strategic relationship will provide a proven template for all 500 United Country offices to work closely with local Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation chapters to raise money and bring global awareness to the cause of conservation.

“This continued strategic partnership will strengthen the collaborative relationship our franchise offices have with local Rocky Mountain Foundation chapters across the nation,” said Dan Duffy, chief executive officer of United Country Real Estate. “These partnerships will enhance awareness of the cause of conservation locally and globally.”

The joint relationship has several other important components including:
  • Increasing Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Memberships
  • Increasing understanding of conservation easements
  • Provide an avenue in which property that is domicile to big game habitat may transfer to conservation-minded buyers to help ensure protection of land and that habitat for future generations

“This strategic relationship will have immediate gains in land conservation, but the true measure of this continued joint effort will be realized by our children, grandchildren and beyond,” Duffy said.
