Dear Concerned Benefactor,

Under My Wing Avian Refuge is a non-profit organization that takes the business aspects of its operations seriously.

It is due to your trust and investment that today we have, a very exciting and successful, mission!

Our responsibility to both the birds and the general public is to create lean project budgets that have the most mission impact at the lowest dollar impact to the wallets of our supporters.

Under My Wing honors our benefactors, as a donor please know the rights we honor.  A Donor Bills of Rights.

Under My Wing Avian Refuge provides a safe haven to exotic birds and maintains their lifelong care. In addition Under My Wing provides services to the avian community in general via education, hands-on training and educate the public to better animal welfare issues. We also offer community service and programs specifically designed to assist the elder, disabled and the youth population

Your donation dollar is not used to support the staff at Under My Wing, but rather to support unwanted, abused and neglected parrots in the avian community who rely solely on our organization to provide a safe and secure housing as well as: proper veterinary care, healthy diets and mental stimulation.

You help to enrich their lives, strengthen our organization, and help secure the future of our sanctuary for years to come.

Please take a moment to read the content provided on our website. You will not only read about the mission of Under My Wing and how the mission is accomplished but you will meet in images the before and after life changing and progress of the many birds whom the mission reaches.

We are also in need of major donors to help with special projects and long-term development!

Your contribution, as part of a winning team of donors, will fill out a responsible revenue model and will benefit many parrots as well as our community and people who rely on our services. Please consider becoming a member of Under My Wing Avian Refuge.

All supporters of Under My Wing projects are the lifeblood of our organization. We rely on you. Please be assured of our immense gratitude for your financial support, as we continue to save, serve and care for parrots from abuse and neglect as well as protect the endangered species from becoming extinct.
