Together for wildlife!

Dear friends,

You can inspire hope and action for the natural world. The Oregon Zoo Foundation is a philanthropic outlet for this community of zoo supporters to invest deeply in caring for wildlife and the natural world.

The zoo provides comprehensive care for the animals. Donations from individuals and organizations elevate that care – giving the zoo’s veterinarians, keepers and wildlife experts the resources they need where they’re needed most. Every animal you’ll see at the zoo, and many of their wild counterparts, have been helped by generous gifts of all sizes from people like you.

Our mission is to foster community pride and involvement in the Oregon Zoo and to secure financial support for animal well-being, species recovery and conservation education. Since 1997, we’ve funded more than $96 million for important initiatives and capital infrastructure projects.

See you at the zoo!
