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 winter long.

The Zoo has faced unprecedented financial challenges as the result of the pandemic and we need your help to make it through the long winter ahead.  It costs $1.21 to provide food and veterinary care for each of our 1,400 animals each day.  Normally, we’re able to earn enough revenue during the summer months to cover our costs through the winter.  That isn’t the case this year.

We have a goal to raise $124,989 to cover the cost of food, veterinary care, and other Zoo needs for the months of November & December. Please consider making a gift in honor of your favorite Zoo animal today!

Thanks to a challenge gift made by a generous donor in our community, any gift you make today is DOUBLED, up to $100,000.  There’s no better time to make a gift than today!
