Appropriate sales tax will be assigned to taxable items. The amount you pay in excess of the fair market value would normally be available to you as a charitable contribution for tax purposes. Please check with your tax advisor for specifics. The RMRP will provide documentation of fair market value/charitable contribution after the raptors have dealt with the data crunching, post auction.

Become a Sponsor

This event is extremely important to the RMRP and our ability to achieve our mission. Our annual Gala and Auction provides nearly 20% of our yearly operating funds, plus is an opportunity for our committed donors and followers to celebrate the year's achievements, raptors, and the environment.

We hope that the Gala will also act as a way for you to promote your company, and to show how much you care about Colorado's wildlife and the environmental education the RMRP can provide.  Your sponsorship can help save raptor lives and enrich human lives.

The Gala is our biggest event of the year. Being hosted virtually this year, your sponsorship will reach out to more people then ever before. We invite you to become the life of the party while saving lives in need.
