Financials & Organization


By maintaining operational efficiency and investing in innovative conservation strategies, we are able to direct an incredible 91 percent of total spending directly to conservation and advocacy activities. Urban Bird’s programmatic investments spanning hands-on conservation projects, research, advocacy, education and outreach are designed to address the prevalent, interconnected conservation and community health issues that disconnect people from nature and are responsible for reducing bird populations in suburban and urban environments. Thank you for your support and encouragement in this great effort to preserve nature, birds and sustainable living in our own backyards.


Conservation Programs

91% of spending is directed to conservation activities – your donations at work!

In 2018, Urban Bird Foundation became an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization after 8 years under the umbrella of Earth Island Institute. During that time, Earth Island Institute provided fiscal sponsorship, resources, and technical assistance.

As an independent nonprofit, Urban Bird Foundation is expanding its programs for the protection of birds in urbanized areas, including burrowing owls, shorebirds, habitat restoration and rescues across the nation. None of this progress would have happened without the continued support of our generous donors.

Thank you for making our previous successes possible and joining us as we create new conservation milestones.

Urban Bird Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization (Tax Identification Number 83-0675132).
