Operations funding and grants


The Foundation uses the funds it has raised to support the conservation of birds of prey and appeals to all nature lovers – even the smallest financial support is precious and welcome.  Your personal donation helps conserve birds of prey. 

The Finnish Osprey Foundation accepts donations and wills, organises different kinds of events, and markets products related to birds of prey.  The profits are directed to the birds of prey research and conservation.

You can make a donation to the Finnish Osprey Foundation’s bank account FI 28 5680 2720 0304 12.
