Partner with Us

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.

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.
