Help us make a difference for birds in the Richmond area. We rely heavily on our RAS members to volunteer their services and resources, yet we often need funds to implement our many local conservation and educational efforts. Your donations are appreciated.

RAS is Nonprofit

The Richmond Audubon Society is a nonprofit organization that is run by volunteers, partnerships, grants and contributions. Fund raising efforts include several yearly events such as the RAS Annual Auction and the yearly Bird-A-Thon. We are always looking for volunteers and your help in any way is welcome and appreciated. We support a wide range of projects, meetings, and programs – most of which we do free of charge. Your support can be given in various ways: consider volunteering your time, sponsoring a Bird-A-Thon team or making a monetary donation.
