How to Donate to Help Save Neotropical Migratory Birds
The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act accepts monetary donations.  Donated funds go directly to grants to conserve migratory birds throughout the western hemisphere.  

To donate, please make your check or money order payable to the "U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service"  and in the memo area, write "Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act." This will ensure the funding is directed to the correct program.  Each donor will receive a written acknowledgement of the donation.  Mail your check or money order to:

Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act Program
Division of Bird Habitat Conservation
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
5275 Leesburg Pike, MS-MB
Falls Church, VA 22041-3803

What We Do
The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA, or Neotrop Act) grant program provides funding for partners with conservation goals in keeping with our mission: to protect neotropical migrants and their habitat. 
The Neotrop Act grants are a catalyzing force for the creation of new partnerships between organizations both public and private across the Western Hemisphere.  NMBCA support helps these partnerships to grow and thrive, and enables them to reach greater goals.

Why Donate?
Your donation goes directly to projects that conserve migratory birds and their habitat. Projects encompass a range of activities, such as population management, habitat restoration and protection, research, law enforcement and education.  Because the NMBCA grant program requires grantees to match every grant dollar with 3 other dollars, your donation goes four times as far.

No matter the size of your contribution, it will go where it counts.  Your donation may also be tax deductible!  Contact your tax advisor to find out. Donors receive a written acknowledgment of their contribution.

For more information, contact Guy Foulks, program coordinator, at 703-358-1784 or via email at

Who receives funding? 
A number of organizations have received funding for their projects so far, but any organization or individual is welcome to compete for funding. The applicants’ proposals are scrutinized and selected by a group of experts, and grants are managed by the FWS.
