Promoting the enjoyment, study, and conservation of Wisconsin's birds.

GreatGrayOwl RyanBradyThere are five sponsorship levels, ranging from $100/year (Tier 5) for common or lesser known species to $2,000/year (Tier 1) for rare and/or charismatic species.

You may choose one or more species to sponsor. You can only sponsor one species at a time using the online Sponsorship Form. To sponsor another species, return to the online Sponsorship Form again.

You can sponsor a species for one year, multiple years, or for all five years of the Atlas project. Please consider making a five-year commitment or pledge to support the Atlas project for its duration. You can pay annually for a multi-year pledge; we'll send you reminders each year.

You can sponsor your species in memory or in honor of another person or an organization. If you choose, your sponsorship can remain anonymous. Please indicate these choices on the form.

As species are sponsored, we will post the name (or "anonymous") of the sponsor next to the species in the lists below. Our goal is to generate much-needed funding for the Atlas project, and we welcome all contributions.

All sponsors will be recognized on the "Acknowledgments" page of the Atlas and five-year sponsors will be named on the species page in the finished Atlas. All contributions to the Atlas will be acknowledged in appropriate WSO communications and publications, as well.

Your species sponsorship or contribution to the Atlas project is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
