RRBO's fall fundraiser

RRBO generally only does one fundraiser a year: a fall donation solicitation letter. If you are on our mailing list, you will have just received it recently (if you are not and would like to be, please send me and email: jac.rrbo AT gmail DOT com).

Many of you know that I am a Contributing Editor to Birder's World Magazine, a fantastic bi-monthly about birds and birding. I write a column in every issue, answering reader questions, and also write regular features. In celebration of my 15th year with the magazine, they are offering a free one-year gift subscription for those who make a donation to RRBO of $200 or more if we receive the donation before December 31, 2008. If you are already a subscriber, you can designate a gift.

For those of you who didn't get this offer in the mail, you can download and print a donation form (PDF). If you do donate $200 or more, make sure to download and print the subscription coupon and return it with your donation.

Remember that your donation (less the retail price of the magazine) is tax deductible -- and if you are a Michigan resident, that also means a 50% tax credit on your state taxes even if you don't itemize (up to a $200 credit). It's a great deal!
