Support Our Work
Thank you for considering a gift to Connecticut Audubon Society!
We deliver our mission of conserving Connecticut’s environment through science-based education and advocacy focused on the state’s bird populations and their habitats every day for the benefit of every Connecticut resident. Our many programs, Centers, and sanctuaries are truly making a difference, in the ways described on this website.
Member fees and grants do not fully support us in delivering this important mission. We depend on the generosity of individuals like you to help us make a positive impact on Connecticut’s environment.
Please join our supporters – many of whom have been contributing for over 25 years! For further information about supporting our work, please contact Rachel Doss at 202-719-8098 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How You Can Help
Our Annual Appeal is conducted at the end of every calendar year. Annual donations provide the flexibility to meet the most pressing needs facing the Connecticut Audubon Society. Every gift is needed and appreciated.
We are keenly aware of the financial constraints many in Connecticut face. We have launched a monthly-giving option to allow those on tight incomes to still make a positive impact on Connecticut’s environment.
Many businesses allow you to double the impact of your gift. Your membership dues and gifts may be matched dollar-for-dollar by your employer. You can get information and forms from your Human Resources office. We are an approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and can provide a tax-exempt status letter.
Often, family and friends want to help by donating to a cause that was special to a loved one, as a living tribute. We send notes of condolence and acknowledgment to the family.
Honor a friend or family member who holds birds and the environment dear through a gift to Connecticut Audubon Society in their name. Weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries are examples of special occasions when you can send a gift with a note in their honor.
Gifts of Securities
Often, the best way to give is to donate securities. Please contact the Development Office at (203) 259-6305, ext. 102, for information and instructions. Please make sure to include your name on the transfer so Connecticut Audubon Society knows how to recognize your gift appropriately.
