Do you have a vehicle that has reached the end of its life
– or that you no longer need?
Give your car wings to help your winged friends by donating it to Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ Beaters for Tweeters!
Donating a vehicle is a simple way to help yourself and Bird Conservancy!
Vehicles including cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, motorcycles, boats, RVs and campers, ATVs, non-commercial airplanes, snowmobiles, golf carts, motorized wheelchairs, riding lawn mowers, tractors and farm equipment, can be donated. Vehicles are accepted in most – but not all – conditions. Vehicles can be either running or non-running and donations are 100% tax deductible with proceeds benefiting Bird Conservancy of the Rockies.
“Donating a vehicle allowed me to contribute to my favorite organization, Bird Conservancy of the Rockies, while solving my problem of getting rid of Betsy – my past-her-prime ‘birding beater’ car. Betsy, a 1996 Subaru Impreza with 385,000 miles served me well and needed to permanently rest her wings. Betsy served as a mirror of my personality donning window decals reflective of my interests: birding, music, sports. With Betsy, I used to bird every day during my commute, on weekends and even running errands. She helped me lead trips on my designed ‘Raptor Alley’ in Nunn as well as trips to Pawnee National Grassland and beyond. Betsy and I hold special birding memories like the sighting Pink-footed Goose, Kelp Gull, Gyrfalcon and Snowy Owl! I am grateful Betsy’s spirit can live on through Bird Conservancy’s Beaters for Tweeters program.”
