Make Your Donation

The NFSS is a nonprofit organization as described in section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We are a group of hobbyists dedicated to the conservation, breeding, exhibiting and enjoyment of finches & softbills. This is accomplished through our standards for aviculture as well as annual activities & community outreach at both national and local events. We also actively participate in conservation programs across the globe in the name of our finch & softbill species that we keep in captivity. Any funds you donate will go directly back into the organization towards educating the public including newcomers to the hobby and keeping aviculture alive.
