Thank YOU for Give-ing to the Max!

While GiveMN is still working on final totals for all the non-profits involved in Give to the Max day yesterday, we are confident in saying that YOU raised $75,000 for The Raptor Center yesterday.  This is in addition to the $50,000 match that was given to us by Rachel Hollstadt, the Sarah J. Andersen Fund of the Hugh J. Andersen Foundation, and the WM Foundation. This makes a grand total of $125,000 raised yesterday.

It is impossible to express our full appreciation for what those gifts make possible.  Because of you, we have the ability to be there for our sick and injured raptor patients; we can continue to bring our winged ambassadors to all audiences for nose-to-beak learning; we can continue to train veterinary students and veterinarians from around the world to become future leaders in raptor medicine and conservation.
