What is flocking?

Flocking is a fundraiser that Project Graduation has done for many years. In fact, it is typically our biggest fundraiser!

Why are these birds in my yard?

If you came home to a flock of flamingos in your yard, congratulations! You now have the opportunity to support Grapevine Project Graduation! Most likely a friend gave us your name hoping you’d play along. You should have an envelope taped to your doorknob with all of the details of what to do to have them fly away – or continue reading…

How long will they stay?

The birds are typically in your yard for no more than 3 days. Please contact your aviation specialist (the number is on the flyer that was taped to your doorknob) to let them know you are ready for the birds to find a new home. The faster you let them know you are ready, the quicker they will migrate to a new home!

How can I have the birds removed?

For $25 the flock will be removed and your job is done. For $50, the flock will be removed AND you can nominate a friend to receive the flock when it leaves your yard. For $75 you can have the flock leave, send the flock to a friend, AND purchase insurance ensuring you will not have the flock land in your yard again for the year.

Do I have to pay to have them removed?

This is a fundraiser, so we certainly hope you would chose to participate, but our volunteers will pick up the birds regardless. We hope you will enjoy having the flock and maybe even want to pick who gets the flock next!

Is my donation tax deductible?

Grapevine Project Graduation – Grapevine Graduation Celebration, Inc is a 501c3 organization and your donation is deductible according to US tax codes.

I’ve already been flocked, why are the birds back?

If you did not purchase insurance when the birds were first in your yard, these birds can return. For $25 you can have them removed! For $50, you can have them removed, and nominate a friend to receive the flock. I bet you wish you bought insurance! If you DID purchase insurance, we are all volunteers and have made a mistake. Please contact the number on the paper and let them know and they will pick up the birds ASAP.

I don’t have a senior? I don’t even have a student at Grapevine High School? Why did I get flocked?

Someone you know gave us your name thinking you would participate in our fun. Flocking is a fundraiser that directly benefits Project Graduation but also benefits the entire community and thus, the intent is for the entire community to provide support. Please play along knowing you are helping keep the community safe even if your child isn’t a senior or isn’t at Grapevine High School.
