SUPPORT OWLS WITH 6 EASY WAYS TO GIVE!

Help protect owls and their habitat for generations to come

At the Owl Research Institute we are passionate about owls. We work hard to constantly learn new things about, and new ways to protect, these incredible birds. With just a small portion of overall charitable giving going to wildlife conservation in the US, fundraising is a constant challenge. That being said, it is enormously reaffirming when someone makes the very personal decision to support our work. 

Now in our 30th year of operation, we are proud to say that many of our original donors are still with us today. We thinks this speaks to ethics, honesty and, of course, our results. With an ever changing planet, however, the need is more urgent than ever.

When you make a charitable donation to the Owl Research Institute, your gift supports critical research for owl conservation, helping to protect the habitat they need for survival. It also funds our education and outreach efforts as we work to engage the public in conservation topics and influence thoughtful land management decisions. Your generosity will make a difference for owls and for the fragile ecosystems they call home.

There are several ways you can support the Owl Research Institute:

1. GIVE

Your donation protects the natural world

Your one-time, or on-going, monthly donation will support our annual programming. This includes costs associated with long-term research and monitoring, providing educational opportunities for youth and adults alike, and encouraging conservation by providing up-to-date scientific information to resource managers.

 

You can direct your gift to a specific program or the greatest need. If you prefer, mail a check to:

Help someone special celebrate conservation

Tribute gifts are an easy way to make a charitable donation in the name of someone special. Perhaps that special someone is you, a friend, or in memorial of someone who held a fondness for owls. Whoever it is, your tribute gift shows that you, and the recipient, care about the future of owls. 

In a world where everyone seems to have too much stuff, giving the gift of conservation couldn't make more sense. We hope you will join us in celebrating owls for your next gifting opportunity. 

3. ADOPT

Help your favorite species through adoption

For many, one special species touches the heart. For these owl lovers, species adoption is the perfect way to give. 

Available in paper-free, electronic format, or in an information-rich adoption packet, species adoption ensures your gift goes toward the owls you love most. With gift messages included at no extra charge, species adoption makes the perfect gift for someone special.

Your adoption helps fund the following areas around your chosen species: research, special projects, and conservation efforts. 

Shop to support with Montana made gifts

The Owl Research Institute offers a small line of logo products. Hand thrown mugs from Whitefish Pottery and embroidered caps from Image Quest in Ronan, Montana.

Proceeds go directly towards active, priority projects with the greatest need.

Our shop will be open later this spring.

Many corporations have matching gift programs that will match their employees’ donations dollar for dollar. This allows you to double your impact and helps your employer invest in the community. Talk to your employer about this opportunity.

Corporate donating has never been easier with organizations like Your Cause. If there is another donation management site you'd like to use, please let us know at owlresearchinstitute@gmail.com.
