The Stilt Society

Our monthly givers' program, Stilt Society, is a way to make a monthly gift and provide the reliable support vital to protecting birds and their habitats.

Protecting sensitive habitats requires long-term, innovative, science-based work. Effective conservation is a long-term process; and to successfully accomplish that, we rely on steady, predictable funding. When you make a small monthly commitment to the Bird Observatory, it means SFBBO scientists and field staff can remain focused on critical conservation priorities.

What's more, the Stilt Society helps the Bird Observatory reduce fundraising expenses by eliminating the need to send paper reminders to renew your commitment.

Here is how it works:

  • You determine your monthly donation and select "I want to make a recurring donation" on our online form.
  • We will charge your pledge to your credit card each month (charges are made on or around the same date each month).
  • We will send you an e-mail each month, confirming the charge was made.
  • Each January, we will send you an annual giving statement which can be used for tax purposes.
  • Your membership will automatically renew each year, ensuring that you will never miss an issue of the Bay Bird Review newsletter.

It's simple, secure and one of the best ways that you can support the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory. Plus, it saves postage and paper!  

You can use our safe and secure online form to join the Stilt Society, or call our office at 408-946-6548.
