The Gulf Coast Bird Observatory (GCBO) is a privately supported, 501(c)(3) not-for profit, membership organization. We receive no regular state or federal funding. Our funding comes from memberships, private donors, foundations, and state or federal project-specific grants. We must raise every penny of our funding!

We currently have two open challenge grants from the Malcolm C. Damuth Foundation to build our Land Acquisition Fund and General Operations Endowment. And of course memberships from supporters like you are a major source of our funding!
