Become a Monthly Donor

Caring for birds and mammals is still our top priority during these uncertain times. Please consider helping today. Through your monthly donation, we can continue providing for animals at the National Aviary, as well as sustain our educational programming. Together, we can save birds and protect their habitats.

The National Aviary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that depends on donations from individuals, corporations and foundations. Your gift will go towards the daily care of our 500+ animals, education and outreach, operation of our top-notch veterinary hospital, and/or our conservation and field research efforts.

At this time, we are requesting that your gift be directed to the General Operating Fund to be used for our greatest need.
