Help WFO Fulfill our Mission
There Are Many Ways You Can Support WFO

Become a Patron

Patrons are individuals whose abiding high regard for WFO has led them to make a substantial donation to help sustain the organization's long-term financial health.

Patrons enjoy the same benefits as Life members (a lifetime subscription to Western Birds and early registration for conferences and trips), and in addition may be invited to join the Board at special social events. The Board set the minimum donation to become a Patron at $1,500, independent of the donor's membership status (Regular member, Life member, or non-member). The donation may be directed to WFO generally, or to any of its established funds.

We thank the following members, who have generously chosen to support WFO
