Your Gift Matters

Build a Bright Future for Our Zoo

You have the power to make a difference for future generations to be better stewards of their environments and ensure that wildlife is protected and valued. Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium has grown to become a leader in wildlife conservation and animal education. As a vital community resource, The Zoo Society connects people, animals and the natural world through unique experiences that engage people’s minds, touch their hearts and move them to embrace responsible stewardship.

The Zoo Society is the non-profit arm of Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Our mission is to provide and promote financial, volunteer and community support on behalf of the Zoo. You can help us move the dial on saving endangered species, educating our community youth to be strong advocates for the environment and making an impact on future generations.

There are many ways to make a meaningful gift—and many gifts that offer benefits to you as well. It would be our pleasure to talk with you further about extending your impact in our community through gift planning.
