Wild Wings Inc.

I'm raising money to benefit Wild Wings Inc., and any donation will help make an impact. Wild Wings Inc has been a part of Rochester for the past 25 years providing environmentally focused education with non-releasable birds of prey. Their mission to inspire environmental conservation and stewardship through education brings the community together while also providing a home for injured animals that are unable to survive in the wild. 

COVID-19 has hit Wild Wings particularly hard... 

They are an organization that does not receive any funding from the county and relies solely on donations, fundraising, and educational programs.  In the Fall of 2019, they took over operating the Nature Center within Mendon Ponds Park with plans to update and upgrade the building. The Nature Center will provide a home to native non-releasable reptiles, amphibians, and mammals. Since this project was not funded by the county, Wild Wings was relying on programming and fundraising events to support the upgrades. However, COVID stalled fundraising efforts, and their Spring 2020 re-opening date had to be pushed back.

This Spring, Wild Wings lost over $30,000 in programming alone with additional funding lost due to canceled fundraisers, summer camps, and summer programming. These funds are vital to be able to continue providing a home to animals that would otherwise be euthanized and to continue to provide a space where anyone can learn to see and appreciate the natural world. 

Any support you can provide to this organization is greatly appreciated! All donations go directly towards food and care for the animals of Wild Wings. They truly appreciate your kindness and generosity!
