the frontiers fund

All revenue generated through registration, sponsorships and donated funds will be used directly to offset the cost of hosting and conducting the Frontiers in Ornithology Symposium. There are no salaried personnel involved with the event and all excess funds will be donated to young birder focused organizations via The Frontiers Fund as outlined below.

All proceeds from the Symposium go into The Frontiers Fund. Participants are given one ticket to vote for one of three programs. The programs are selected by the Frontiers Team based on their benefit to youth through education, research, or conservation activities. Each program receives a portion of the Fund based on the final vote by participants in the ratio of 50/30/20.

This year’s selected programs are (in alphabetical order):
