Birds of Paradise corporate and foundation partners drive our work.

No single organization has the resources and expertise to solve the plight of the captive parrot. We believe strongly in the power of partnerships to create meaningful, lasting impact.

By working with local agencies, corporations and foundations, we’re jointly pursuing long-term change by transforming standard of care and promoting awareness and unity within our communities. Based on complementary strengths and needs, partner contributions include products and services, financial grants and program support.

Partnering with Birds of Paradise provides organizations
with an avenue to realize their social impact goals and
advance the wellbeing of millions of captive parrots.

Corporations

Birds of Paradise can always use in-kind gifts like building materials, fencing, cages, lawn equipment, fresh fruits and vegetables, bird food, toys, perches and large bird cages. One of our most valued in-kind gifts are the materials used to build aviaries and flight cages. BOPS has stringent guidelines for building safe and secure enclosures and each one requires concrete, fencing, misting sprinklers, shade and shelter cloths, multiple perches, etc. With the average enclosure consisting of 700 square feet, these numbers add up fast—so donations of these types of materials from corporate manufacturers are very appreciated!

Additionally, in some cases, corporations donate toys, perches and food items, including fresh fruits and vegetables, bird food and other tasty treats for the parrots, such as nuts in the shell. All in gifts-in-kind are tax deductible as law permits and we have become experts in creativity and enjoy working with corporations who want to donate any of these types of items.

Birds of Paradise creates unparalleled leverage for donors: More than 98 percent of our expenses support our programs and parrots.

By becoming a Birds of Paradise Emergency Parrot Rescue Partner (an EPRP), your company will help provide the reliable funding base necessary for BOPS to respond swiftly and effectively to abused and abandoned parrots across the country.

The initial rescue operation one-time expenses include veterinary exams & emergency care, travel and temporary cages. But that’s just the beginning. Rescued parrots often have special needs, including a range of physical handicaps or other challenges requiring unique living or feeding arrangements—and this creates an operating overhead of $1,200 a year per parrot as our standards of care includes a nutritionally balanced diet, housing, medical care, perches and toys.

Birds of Paradise Sanctuary is a rescue, retirement, and adoption facility for exotic birds where we provide a safe, stable and loving home for each of our parrots. For some of them, our sanctuary is a temporary home until they find a constant companion through our adoption program. For others that are traumatized, fearful of humans and/or temperamentally unsuited for companionship with people, it is a permanent home. Our Parrot Pals Sponsorship program is for these birds and allows us to provide them with the love, respect and dignity they deserve in a stable home for the duration of their natural lives.

By becoming a corporate Parrot Pal and sponsoring an aviary or flight cage, you join a dedicated group of supporters who understand the importance of making a sustaining commitment to these captive exotic birds.

Your simple but meaningful monthly or annual gift makes an incredible impact for these parrots over the course of your sponsorship. As a sponsor, you contribute to a multi-bird aviary or flight cage. Small aviaries house Cockatiels, Lovebirds, or Parakeets. Large aviaries house Mini Macaws, large Conures or small Cockatoos. Large flight cages house Amazons, Eclectus, African Greys, large Amazons, large Cockatoos or Macaws. As with any type of corporate support, your sponsorship will be promoted on the BOPS website, in our social media channels and in newsletters and email communications to our thousands of followers.
