Donate to a Designated Fund
Ryan Exline Memorial Fund
Ryan was an integral part of the Audubon family for many years until he was tragically killed in an auto accident during his junior year at Duke University. This fund, created in his memory, provides a $500 scholarship to a college-bound high school student, or a college student who is pursuing a Bachelor’s in an environmental field. Money raised above and beyond the $500 is designated towards making improvements to ACNC’s live animal habitats.
Support ACNC’s live animals, through the Animal Advocate program. When you become an Animal Advocate at Audubon Community Nature Center, you are directly supporting animal care. Not only are you assisting to purchase food and other needed supplies for the in-house live animals, but you are also helping Audubon accomplish their mission. The live animals at Audubon help in educational programs both on and offsite that foster the connection between people to nature.
Stephanie Frucella Memorial Fund
Stephanie enjoyed walking Audubon Community Nature Center’s trails with her parents as a child making her own nature discoveries. She grew up to become a fourth grade teacher who loved sharing her passion for nature and the community with her students. To lose her so young was something that no one could have anticipated, and she certainly has not been forgotten. Donations to this fund support merit-based scholarships for students who volunteer in the community and want to attend ACNC programming to further their knowledge of and experience in the natural world. Donations also support the school and Day Camp programs that encourage students to get outdoors and discover nature for themselves.
Audubon Community Nature Center recognizes that not all families can afford the experience of Day Camp due to a variety of circumstances. ACNC also believes that every child deserves a healthy connection to nature. In that spirit, the campership fund provides need-based families with the financial support to send their child(ren) to Day Camp. Your donation goes directly toward offsetting the cost of the tuition for summer Day Camps.
