It is the 50th anniversary of the Trust. Please consider giving in multiples of $50 (or $5.0) to celebrate, and help us reach $250k in total assets.
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.
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.
