How Your Donation Helps

The Bird Center of Michigan is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that depends solely on public support. It costs a lot to rehabilitate an injured bird or raise a baby bird to adulthood, not including the time volunteered by our experienced staff. During the 2014 summer season, we were ordering 60-70,000 mealworms a week! We also spend $25 on paper towels and $185 on veterinary bills each week. Many birds require fresh fruit or ground chicken baby food diets which are expensive. If you are asking the Bird Center to help a bird you have found, please consider making a donation to defray the costs of rehabilitation.
