You helped raise more than $12,000 for the Birds of The Oasis!

We asked and you united. The 2014 Arizona Gives Day has concluded and thanks to your generosity The Oasis received donations in the amount of $12,194.

For a period of time we were in the running for an additional prize but landed in the 13th position for overall donations. Although we missed out on a prize we are astounded by the outpouring of support received from you on this important one day of giving.

We sincerely appreciate your partnership in the life-long commitment we have made to the extraordinary birds in our care.

From all of us at The Oasis, and for each and every one of the birds here...

YOU are our heroes!

Operation 2014: Feed The Birds of The Oasis


We've created the ultimate challenge for 2014. Join us in helping to spread the word! The Oasis has launched its first Crowdfunding Campaign on Fundraise.com.

The challenge is to raise a little more than $75,000 in 75 days to feed our 750 residents for an ENTIRE YEAR. YES, that's right, an ENTIRE YEAR's worth of seed, pellets, fruits and vegetables, nuts, treats, pasta, juice and applesauce.

$75,000 certainly seems like a lot of money but when you slice and dice it, it breaks down to just a little more than $100 per bird for the ENTIRE YEAR.

We can do this! You can do this! Donate $100 to underwrite the cost to feed one of our 750 residents for an ENTIRE YEAR, then SPREAD the WORD about our campaign amongst your personal network. SHARE this article with your Facebook friends and your LinkedIn connections. Even feel free to Tweet about it on Twitter! Do whatever you can to get the word out.

Thanks in advance for your amazing support!
