American Robin

All members of the National Audubon Society who live in our geographic area are automatically members of Wake Audubon. National Audubon will send us a portion of your annual dues. Just keep renewing your national membership. If you are not yet a member of Audubon, join us.

Special Donations

You may also wish to make a special donation directly to Wake Audubon, such as to honor a friend or group, in memory of a loved one, or to support a special project, including the annual Wildathon fundraiser. Wake Audubon is a nonprofit organization; we will send you an acknowledgement of your gift.

There are two ways that you can make your donation.

1. You may send a check with a note as to how to direct your donation. If you are making a donation in honor of someone, and want that person to receive a note from us, please include that person’s address. Send your check to:

Wake Audubon
P.O. Box 12452
Raleigh, NC 27605

2. You may donate online. Click Donate here or on the main Wake Audubon web page. Fill in the amount of your donation and the requested credit card or PayPal account information; you will have a chance to add more information about your donation on the next page.

Click on the “review donation and continue” button and you will get another web page where you will see a small “add special instructions for the seller” (PayPal is set up to view us as “sellers”). Click on that link and you will be able to type your information in the box. You might say, “to honor a friend, Jane Doe” or “in memory of my mother, Dora G.” If you would like for Jane Doe to receive a note from us, please include her address.

If you are making a donation to support a specific project or event, you can indicate that in the box. Examples of special projects are the annual Wildathon (you can even indicate a specific team), Anderson Point Projects,  and Educational Outreach.

Have your workplace match your donation or gift

Many employers offer charitable giving matching programs to their employees. These programs usually match your donation dollar for dollar to the qualified charity of your choice. If your employer offers a matching program, your donation could be twice as valuable to Wake Audubon.

Check with your employer’s human resources department to see if they have a charitable giving matching program in place. Obtain your company’s matching gifts form and send it with your check or printed (PayPal) receipt for donations made online. We’ll do the rest!

If you would like to discuss other giving options, please contact us.
