Support Bay Area birds — 

and have your gift DOUBLED!


Between now and Labor Day, generous friends of Golden Gate Audubon Society have offered to match all donations to GGAS, up to a total of $7,500!  So if you make a tax-deductible contribution this month, every dollar you give will become two dollars to help Bay Area birds.


Your $25 gift will become $50… which can buy ten pairs of gardening gloves for use by our 2,500 habitat restoration volunteers.

Your $50 gift will become $100… and buy lumber and tools for one of our Eco-Education fourth grade classes to build nest boxes for chickadees and bluebirds, to be placed in their schoolyard or a local park.

Your $250 gift will become $500… and provide a training seminar for architects on how to design buildings that will reduce the danger of bird collisions.

Help ensure that future generations can enjoy the same Bay Area shorebirds, raptors, and songbirds that you love today! Thank you for your caring and generosity.
