Thank you for considering a donation to the Wisconsin Bat Program! There are two ways you can make a tax-deductable donation to help bats in the state:
Bat ecologist David Redell and Lisa Wilson created the Wisconsin Bat Conservation Fund to support state bat conservation efforts in perpetuity. The endowment is managed by the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. In addition to cash donations, you can also leave a legacy gift to the Wisconsin Bat Conservation Fund by incorporating the following language into your estate plans:
"I give [describe the gift] to the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin (federal tax id# 39-1572034), a nonprofit corporation organized and existing under the laws of Wisconsin and with a principal mailing address of PO Box 2317, Madison, WI, 53701. This gift shall be designated to the Wisconsin Bat Conservation Fund."
Type "bat program" in the endowed fund text box.
Donations to the Wisconsin Bat Society in the Bureau of Natural Heritage Conservation support bat projects in need of immediate funding and are matched by the State. These funds will be used for WNS research, landowner support in WNS prevention and control, inventory, monitoring, applied management and education about bats.
Choose "Mammals - Bats" in the special donation fund drop-down list.
