By sponsoring a bird you help support that bird's care and role in our education programs. Money raised through Sponsor-a-Bird goes directly towards:

So how does it work? There are just three simple steps:

Step #1 - Choose a bird to sponsor

Step #2 - Choose a donation amount

You can use one of our pre-set donation amounts ($25, $50 or $100) or set your own amount. Donations under $50 will receive an electronic certificate of appreciation and hi-res photo of your sponsored bird. Donations of $50 and over will receive a hard-copy certificate and photo by mail.

Your sponsorship can be a one-time donation or a yearly recurring contribution - you will have the ability to select either option on the sponsorship form.

If you are considering making a larger donation, please visit our Donations page!
