GENERAL DONATION: OPERATING FUND
VAAS is entirely volunteer run, and donations cover the costs of operating our education and conservation programs, such as stewarding and restoring habitat at the Venice Rookery Park, maintaining the Pollinator Garden and Nature Center, covering program and event expenses, purchasing software subscriptions to effectively communicate with members, and others.

SPECIFIC DONATION: CHILDREN’S EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM
Donors may also specifically designate that their donation go to the Children’s Educational Program. The Bird Study Program consists of classroom instruction and a field trip to the Venice Rookery Park for second grade students each year in February and March. This program received an award for Best Statewide Education Program at the 2012 Annual Assembly of Audubon Florida Chapters. Click here for more information about VAAS' programs.
Your donation sponsors a teacher to provide instruction in the classroom and on the Rookery field trip.
Your donation helps fund bus transportation for the students to visit Venice Rookery Park. Most schools cannot cover this cost.
