2022 Fiscal Year: July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022
Thank you for supporting the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. In fiscal year 2022, thousands of members and donors provided more than 70% of our annual revenue, a total of $30.8 million that expands our capacity to promote global conservation through research, education, and citizen science.
As it was for many people and organizations, fiscal year 2022 was again unusual for the Lab: we saw an increase in charitable giving, combined with a minimal increase in expenses (in part driven by a tight labor market and continued reduction in travel due to the pandemic).
As a result, the Lab ended the year with an uncommon surplus of funds. As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, this surplus will allow us to grow in strategic ways as quickly as possible in fiscal year 2023 and beyond, particularly given that the threats facing birds and biodiversity are immediate and significant. Thank you for making it possible for us to invest in our vital research, education, and conservation efforts.
