Matching gifts

Many employers, as part of their employee benefits package, will match donations made by employees to charitable organizations. Check with your personnel office to see whether your company has a matching gift program.

Use a real estate transaction to benefit GGBA – at no cost to you

The next time you decide to sell a property, you can also help Golden Gate Bird Alliance protect birds and their habitat. We are working with My Broker Donates in a unique partnership in which participating real estate agents donate 15 percent of their commission to GGBA. There is no cost to the homeowner.

How big are those donations? A $500,000 home yields a donation of more than $2,000, which we can use in our work to protect native bird species and their habitats.

Please consider contacting My Broker Donates at before you hire a real estate agent. My Broker Donates will connect you with a participating agent in your area, and Golden Gate Bird Alliance — and the Bay Area’s birds — will benefit.
