Palmetto Giving Day is a 24-hour, online giving event focused on 34 nonprofit organizations which serve Georgetown County. Your gift will help make the first Palmetto Giving Day a huge success. The Center’s entire community of donors can contribute to this event and help us achieve important strategic objectives that will advance avian science and education.


Why should you give on Palmetto Giving Day?

Your gift is needed on May 2nd to:

  • Secure important matching funds
  • Address staffing needs
  • Conduct annual training for oil spill response readiness
  • Create a specialized enclosure for injured shorebirds admitted to the Medical Clinic

Your gift supports and shares the legacy of the natural world that will endure for our children, our grandchildren, and all of those who follow.
