All of the members of our group are unpaid volunteers, but we have on-going operating expenses such as food for the raptors and medical and office supplies. Every contribution, no matter how small, will help defray our costs so that we can fulfill our mission effectively and efficiently. We are humbled and gratified by the many donations and offers to help that we have already received.
There are three ways you can help:
Under the You Can Help menu above you will find pages that list some in-kind needs and possible volunteer opportunities and that explain how we can put your financial donations to use.
If you are considering making an in-kind donation, please contact us (phone 319-248-9770 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we can be sure your donation doesn’t duplicate other donations and so that we can tell you where to send your gift. Also contact us if you are interested in offering your time as a volunteer so that we can discuss the possibilities with you.
We will acknowledge you as a donor and/or volunteer here on our web page (unless you wish to remain anonymous) as well as with a heartfelt thank-you letter that includes information for your tax reporting.
We are profoundly grateful to all of our donors and volunteers and are eager to welcome you to our team!
