    Hawk Mountain Sanctuary has joined the 2016 #GivingTuesday movement, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. The Hawk Mountain campaign entitled #HelptheHawks encourages all supporters to donate a monetary gift to the organization’s Annual Fund.
         Giving Tuesday is held annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events such as Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. The movement kicks off the holiday giving season and inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and organizations.
    The #HelptheHawks campaign is in place to remind supporters of the Sanctuary’s main mission: protecting birds of prey globally. Hawk Mountain has chosen specifically to promote its Annual Fund, which supports many aspects of the Sanctuary such as conservation research, education, and visitor services.
    This year’s annual fund focuses on one of the Sanctuary’s singularly significant conservation successes, its international conservation science training programs, which as of late 2016 has trained more than 400 young conservation scientists from more than 70 countries on six continents.  “In the past I have called our trainees the ‘next generation’ of globally significant leaders in the field of raptor conservation.  They are now the ‘now generation’ of leaders in the field,” say Dr. Keith Bildstein, the Sanctuary’s Director of Conservation Science and Interim President.

    Hawk Mountain can accept donations through their website at hawkmountain.org/donate or via a mailed-in check. For information, contact Tammy at jandrasitz@hawkmountain.org or call the Sanctuary at 610-756-6961

       “The Annual Fund ensures that we can continue the very important work of our mission 365-days a year,” said Tammy Jandrasitz, Membership and Volunteer Manager at the Hawk Mountain.
