Spring Appeal 2020
Thank you for Supporting SFBBO's continued work during this critical time!
Thank you for supporting SFBBO's mission by making a donation to our Spring Appeal today and helping us raise $15,000 by June 30!
Although April has been an extremely challenging month, our collective response to this global pandemic has helped flatten the curve and illuminated what we can accomplish through cooperation and generosity. The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO) is proud to do its part to support this effort while continuing to serve the local community. We also realize our mission to conserve birds and habitats has never been more relevant, since a healthy environment increases the resiliency of our human communities. With your help, we will continue our work to protect and improve habitats for both birds and people in the Bay Area.
What your donation will support:
Exciting New Activities - the virtual activities we’ve designed to keep our community engaged from home including our #AskAScientist social media campaign, "Birdy Hour" virtual talks, and a new partnership with the nonprofit Marshmallow Minds to design bird-centered lessons that will be delivered virtually to thousands of students to advance their environmental design-thinking skills. We are excited about these new programs and are actively working on more ideas to continue engaging the community.
Keeping Our Science Programs Going - Although California may soon loosen restrictions on outdoor work, many of our field projects remain on hold. While we have managed to keep all of our current staff working by transferring their time to internal computer-driven projects, this has strained our moderate reserves.
Thank you for making a gift today to support SFBBO during this challenging period and, if possible, increasing your impact by participating in your company’s matching gift program! Your support at this critical time is especially needed to allow us to succeed now and jumpstart our science and in-person outreach activities in the future.
When you make a donation, you will automatically and immediately receive an emailed receipt.
