Raptors Keep Visitor Center - Phase 1

Donation protected
Raptors Keep is a federally permitted, not for profit, organization that specialized in birds of prey. We run a sanctuary for non-releasable birds of prey (AKA raptors) and do public presentations on the importance of wildlife conservation.

Presently, Raptors Keep is operating out a our founder's home. We have acquired a property that we would like to convert into a visitor's center but do not have the funds to do so as all of our donations go to bird food and medical expenses, etc. Because we don't have a public facility, we are limited to doing (in-person) education and outreach at festivals and other outside venues only a few times a year. While we enjoy these events, we believe that we could accomplish so much more if we also had a location that teachers could bring their classes to and anyone could visit year-round.

The building we got is old and needs a lot of work! So we are breaking it down into phases.

PHASE 1:
redo roof
repair foundation
replace windows
repair/replace siding
ESTIMATED COST $20,000

PHASE 2:
install central HVAC
ensure electric and pluming are up to code
fix any framing issues
interior demolition and dump
ESTIMATED COST $29,400

PHASE 3:
new insulation/drywall/paint
flooring
fixtures
cabinets
restroom
etc
ESTIMATED COST $58,000

These estimates were given to us from a contractor. All-in we are looking at about $107,400 worth of work. It will greatly enhance our outreach though and help us give the birds an even greater quality of life. To learn more about our organization, visit our website www.raptors-keep.com
