Our Annual Fund provides funds for our ongoing operating expenses such as the care and feeding of over 2,000 animals.
Capital Campaign funds are designated for capital improvements at the Zoo such as new exhibits and other extensions to the Zoo’s current assets.
This exclusive annual giving program helps sustain quality care for our animals, upkeep of gardens, education programs, and conservation initiatives world-wide.
Dedicating a donation, creating a brick, or purchasing a bench for an individual or a family are a thoughtful way to help sustain a legacy while supporting the Zoo.
Through our Legacy Society, gifts of wills, trust, and estate plans demonstrate your support for our institution and help provide the stability and security that we need to guarantee a bright future.
