Support the Arkansas Audubon Society Trust

The AAS Trust consistently receives more in deserving requests than funds available. We need your help to grow our funds. Your donation is placed in the Endowment-Memorial Fund where it is invested. Only the interest from the contribution is used for grants. Therefore, the original gift is never depleted, but continues to give, over and over again, year after year. However, should you choose to have your donation used immediately, contributions may be placed directly in the Research-Education Fund. Contributions can also be made to the Max Parker Fund, which recognizes outstanding in-state bird projects, or the Red-cockaded Woodpecker Fund, which is strictly for projects on that endangered species. Please consider making a gift today.

Supporting Research

Research shows we've lost nearly 3 billion birds since 1970. Climate change, habitat loss and a myriad other threats have contributed to that. How birds are adapting to a changing and challenging world is an area of active research.

Today, as we struggle to understand the issues influencing bird populations, the support of solid scientific research remains an important conservation tool. The AAS Trust prioritizes projects with bird conservation connections. Contributing to the Trust is an excellent way to promote bird conservation.

Trust Giving

Memorial Gifts: Members of the Arkansas Audubon Society have traditionally remembered deceased society friends with memorial gifts to the AAS Trust. The memorialized individual and the donor are both recognized in Arkansas Birds, the newsletter of the Society.

Wills and Bequests: Arkansas Audubon Society members can remember the AAS Trust in their wills (or through other forms of charitable giving, for example making the Trust a beneficiary to a life insurance policy). The Trust has an attorney who will be glad to help structure a bequest. All contributions to the Trust are fully tax deductible.
