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.

Annual Fund

Help care for our animals all year long.

We are facing unprecedented financial challenges as a direct result of the pandemic and we need your help to care for our animals, our team, maintain our exhibits and grounds, and keep our programs going.
On average it costs $1.21 per day to feed and provide care for each of the 1,400 who call the Zoo home.  Normally, we’re able to earn enough during the summer months to cover these costs.  That wasn’t the case in 2020.
Please consider making a gift today!
