This year's Giving Tuesday is November 28, 2023! Your donations will help support our bird conservation and education programs, and every little bit helps!
Our Board Chair, Geoff Holroyd will match the first $10,000 in member donations. The Board of Directors are prepared to match your donation and Geoff’s so your donation will be quadrupled. If we reach $50,000, the Edmonton Community Foundation will match us again. Your $250 donation will be worth $2000 in our Endowment Fund, generating financial support to BBO in perpetuity.
You can help us get a head start by donating now!
During the winter months, the BBO operates an education outreach program called BirdSmart Education. Our staff give in-presentations with a live bird of prey to all grade levels (pre-k to 12) that are tailored to match the Alberta Curriculum and focus on birds, conservation and climate change. Presentations are also available to afterschool groups, seniors homes, birthday parties and more! Book your presentation today to meet a live bird of prey and learn about the natural world.Learn More

The BBO has established an Endowment Fund to help secure future research efforts!
As a non-profit, BBO relies on grants, donations and fundraising to continue the work we do, none of which can be counted on from year to year. By creating this Endowment Fund with the Edmonton Community Foundation, we intend to eventually provide lifelong support to our organization, allowing us to continue our valuable conservation work without fear of interruption.
