Did Someone say Free Money?
Midwest Birding Symposium donates the majority of its net proceeds to support conservation-oriented organizations and programs. In 2009, MBS donations totaled $10,000 thanks to a matching donation from The Ohio Ornithological Society. In 2011, donations doubled to $20,000 thanks again to matching funds from the OOS. For 2013, we hope to generate even more money for conservation, and we have a lot of GREAT prizes to raffle off this year. Donations of prizes are still being accepted.Tickets for the MBS Conservation Raffle are $5 for 1 ticket, $10 for 3 tickets, or $20 for 10 tickets. You don't need to be present to win. Winners will be announced each night in Hoover Auditorium.
After each MBS, the MBS hosts select a small number of conservation organizations, projects, and other worthy causes to receive contributions from the MBS Conservation Fund. For the 2013 MBS we're asking interested organizations/representatives to complete and return a one-page funding application.
