Help Keep The Raptor Center Soaring!

Thursday, November 13 is Give to the Max Day.  On this day, people come to together in a tremendous and heart-warming show of philanthropy.  Give to the Max Day is one of TRC's largest fund raisers for the year.

Why it GTTM Day Important?
Although TRC is part of the University of Minnesota, we receive less than 10% of our operating budget from the University.  Our program income from the education department makes up about 30% of our budget. And a whopping 60% of our budget comes from YOU.

All Gifts Up to $50,000 Matched Because of the generosity of Rachel Hollstadt, the Sarah J. Andersen Fund of the Hugh J. Andersen Foundation, and the WM Foundation, ALL gifts given that day up to $50,000 will be matched. This means a $25 gift will receive a $25 match, so the gift to The Raptor Center is $50! 

Giving Is Easy
We want to make giving as easy as we can for you!  If you would rather mail in a check, or call us with a credit card number, you can certainly do so.  Your gift will still go towards our match.  Ellen Orndorf can be reached at 612-624-8457 or

You can also schedule your gift between now and Thursday, November 13.  If you go to the website at, there is a "schedule" button right under the Donate section.

You can view a video message from Dr. Julia Ponder, TRC's Executive Director, here.
