Help the festival Take flight


The Boston Birding Festival is a Massachusetts nonprofit organization founded in 2023. Your gift may be tax deductible.

Become a Friend of the Festival by making a monthly or annual gift.

You will be supporting our ability to offer free and low-cost ongoing community programming year-round that produces greater awareness of conservation, environmental justice, and climate issues—through the special and accessible lens of birding. 

As the ecologist, Dr. Thomas Lovejoy (the “godfather of biodiversity) put it,  “If you take care of birds, you take care of most of the environmental problems in the world.”

Your gift makes a significant impact on the programming we can offer. With your support, we can:

By supporting our year-round programming, you are helping us lay the groundwork for a successful multi-day event in 2025. Small events give us the chance to test some of our program ideas and improve these experiences. They also help us develop relationships with partners for the future. They give us a way to identify and connect with important emerging voices, new leaders, and educators, and give them, a chance to gain experience.

Finally, your support of small events helps us make a powerful case to sponsors for our multi-day event in 2025. That support can help to ensure that Festival programs remain affordable to a diverse community.

Thank you!
