Yes! I am proud to support Fort Wayne Children's Zoo and its mission of connecting kids with animals, strengthening families, and inspiring people to care about the world around them.
 
50th Birthday Donation
    Other Amt: $ .00
Simply put – we wouldn’t be celebrating our 50th Birthday without YOU.  In 1965, our community came together to help build the zoo, starting with school children who collected and donated pennies to build Monkey Island.  Since that time, our community has come together time and again to help create everything you see at the zoo.  You can help us celebrate our 50th Birthday through a donation.  Every penny donated helps support our shared mission of connecting kids with animals, strengthening families and inspiring people to care.

Gifts of $400 or more are eligible for a recognition tile, if interested please contact development@kidszoo.org.
 
 
Annual Fund
    Other Amt: $ .00
Gifts to the Annual Fund directly support our mission of connecting kids with animals, strengthening families, and inspiring people to care.  The generosity of individuals who support this fund make the zoo a wonderful experience for our guests each and every day.  Because the zoo receives no tax support, donations go directly to support our mission.  Here are some examples of how your gifts support our daily work:

  • $100 keeps the lion and hyena windows clean
