Supporter of the Shriners Children's Hospitals

The Andover Sportsmen's Club, incorporated in 1934, by sportsmen from the local communities, was formed to conserve, restore and manage wildlife; to seek to procure and maintain friendly relations with sportsmen; to cooperate in obtaining proper respect for and observation of the fish and game laws; to spread knowledge of wildlife and to encourage and promote good fellowship.

The Club was incorporated as a Massachusetts Not-For-Profit Corporation, which exempts the Club from payment of taxes on all member related income.   In order to maintain its not-for-profit status, the Club endeavors to promote educational, charitable and benevolent activities in the Andover communities and its environs. The tax savings is substantial and is used to fund operations, range events and maintenance, insurance, utililities and community relations. 

For example, the Club is a proud supporter of the Aleppo Shrinners Hospitals for Children which seeks to provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs by providing exceptional healthcare through innovative research, in a patient and family-centered environment.
