The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is proud of its careful stewardship of resources over the past year. The Lab’s revenue and expenses have grown consistently during the past seven years as programs have begun to mature and have a greater impact in the world. Even in a difficult fiscal year, the Lab was thankful to have a broad and generous base of financial support from members through annual, capital, and planned giving, while continuing to keep administrative and fundraising expenses low. Thank you for trusting us with your gifts. We will continue to work hard so that these gifts result in positive impacts for birds and biodiversity.
