Through December 31, all donations made online to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary’s 2023 Annual Fund will be matched graciously by the Jessie Ball duPont Fund through the Lightful BRIDGE Program. Support us by donating here.

Additionally, the Jessie Ball duPont Fund has provided complimentary digital fundraising training, allowing Sanctuary professionals to learn from digital media experts at Lightful on how to develop and execute their digital fundraising strategies, utilizing Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving, as a jumpstart for its 2023 Annual Fund year-end giving campaign. All donations made online on Giving Tuesday, November 28, will be matched for greater impact with a special 2:1 match from the grant, doubling your support!

This year Hawk Mountain encourages supporters to #CelebratetheSanctuary by not only giving to the Annual Fund, but also by spreading the word about Hawk Mountain’s accomplishments in wildlife conservation, environmental education, and forest stewardship. Gifts to the Hawk Mountain Annual Fund help virtually every aspect of Sanctuary operations, including scientific research, education for all ages, forest management, facility maintenance, visitor services, and, of course, the longest running raptor migration count in the world.

“We are so grateful to be part of an incredible match funding opportunity thanks to the Jessie Ball duPont Fund and Lightful. If you believe in Hawk Mountain and our mission, now is the time to make your gift,” says Director of Development Mary Linkevich.

Celebrate the Sanctuary this giving season by donating now to the online 2023 Annual Fund campaign. Every gift helps to protect raptors globally and ensures ongoing progress with the Sanctuary’s local to global conservation mission. THANK YOU for your support.
