Our funds provide support for research, educational programs, scholarships and projects related to birds and ornithology in Kentucky. Publications and recordkeeping play an important role in preserving the ornithological history of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Donations to KOS and membership proceeds allow the sponsorship of these various programs promoting the goals and interests of KOS, and Kentucky bird lovers in general.
