Financial gifts are necessary to the survival and success of a non-profit organization. Financial gifts are the most common type of donation, but all kinds of donations are needed and appreciated. There are many ways to support a non-profit that you care about. The options below will show you other meaningful ways you can donate to Beak n Wings.
Since 1993, Beak n Wings has taken in over 2000 birds! Today, Beak ‘n Wings has over 60 parrots in our rescue program. We are in great need of donations to provide homeless parrots with proper care.
WE ARE A NO KILL SHELTER
Our parrots will never be euthanized due to overcrowding. It costs a lot to feed each bird a healthy diet, and provide appropriate cages, toys, and veterinary care. We also must cover other costs, such as website fees, rent, office supplies, transportation costs, phone bills, etc. Our volunteers receive no pay.
WE DEPEND ENTIRELY UPON YOUR DONATIONS
From quality pellets, fresh foods, toys and aviary repairs to utilities, accounting, office supplies, insurances, internet and phone service to trash service…your donation helps with all the daily nuts and bolts of running a parrot rescue.
Volunteering with Beak n Wings is a great way to learn more about parrots. Whether you are considering your first bird, moving from a small bird to a larger one, or caring for an established flock; working with our members will improve your knowledge of parrots. Our events range from a few hours meeting the public to multiple day events. No matter what size or location though, we always have a lot of fun and there will always be parrots!

Our birds are family. We do everything possible to help our birds if they become sick or injured. We also provide lifetime care for birds who will never be adopted due to health or behavioral issues. This isn’t often, thank goodness, but with the quantity of birds in our flock, one or two are usually in need of special care at any given time. You can sponsor one of our special needs birds
Tommy - sponsored by Steff Barton
Hi, my name is Tommy, I'm a Goffin's Cockatoo and I need your help. I was rescued from an abusive home by a very kind woman, but when she couldn't care for me anymore I came to Beak n Wings. I have been cared for in special foster homes since 2007! I have made so much improvement that I am now (in 2021) allowed to visit the BNW facility. You can see me running around on the floor in the meeting room sometimes. I still require close supervision, so I am not up for adoption.
Joey - sponsor needed
I’m Joey, the Yellow Collared Macaw. I came to BNW in 2019, and I am now over 30 years old. I have health issues that make me unadoptable. I have a severe beak deformity that requires careful grooming, as well as liver problems. I am very fond of my foster mom, and I’m happy to be staying with BNW permanently. Would you like to sponsor me?
Oscar - sponsor needed
Hi there, I am Oscar and I am a Lutino Indian Ringneck. My age is unknown, my previous owner had health problems and so I came to BNW along with many of her other birds. While some of my friends have been adopted, I have kidney problems that haven’t improved with better care. I am looking for a sponsor to help with my expenses.
A Corporate or Business Sponsorship benefits both your company and our mission. Your company’s sponsorship is recognized by BNW with an acknowledgment in our advertising, website and signage that your business supports our activities, programs, or special events.
Additionally, corporate sponsorships attract the attention of for-profit businesses because sponsorships offer public recognition of the business’s connection with a certain charitable cause, which may help your business attract new customers or bolster your company’s reputation because of the association with a nonprofit’s good will. BNW, as a charitable nonprofit, in turn, receives financial support and may also experience increased attention from the media and the public, in-kind services, and/or product donations.
We would love to have your company partner with us! For inquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome gifts of building materials, cleaning and maintenance supplies and equipment, bird stands and toys, pellets or nuts in shell, clean, safe cages…anything that would be useful to a bird rescue. Your donation of goods is tax-deductible.
Also, if you have a skill or area of expertise you can share with BNW such as electrical work, plumbing, building, architecture, design, event planning—all kinds of professions—are all much needed skills if you can spare a weekend to help out. Your time is not tax-deductible, but we have loads of fun working together on projects at BNW, and the parrots are always entertaining!
