CoMoGives officially begins December 1, 2020. This online platform provides 142 nonprofit groups, including Columbia Audubon Society, an opportunity to raise funds for their organizations.

In 2019, 90 donors contributed over $10,000 to CAS through CoMoGives. Our goal for the 2020 campaign is $10,000. CoMoGives is the only fundraising effort for CAS.

CAS is proud to be an all-volunteer organization. All donations to CAS go directly to support our programs: scholarships for students and teachers, student field trips, financial support for the Boone County Nature School, 200+ acres of nature areas for outdoor enthusiasts and bird lovers, and programs to assist in research and citizen science. CoMoGives provides an opportunity to educate the community about CAS. Visit the CoMoGives website at to make your online donation.
