Ways of Giving

There are many rewarding ways to make a gift to Woodland Park Zoo. Every gift is a gift to our campaign to create more wonder for our community and more wild for our world.

By check or credit card

You can mail in your donation or make a gift securely online 

Make a pledge

By spreading payments over a period of time — typically not more than five years — pledges allow you to make larger commitments and fulfill them at a comfortable pace. 

Join ZooFriends - recurring gifts

Sign up for monthly automatic transfers from your credit card. It’s safe and secure and you can cancel or change your pledge at any time.

Stock transfer

Make a gift through an electronic transfer of stock, and potentially save paying capital gains tax.

Real estate

Many types of real estate assets can be donated to the zoo. You can advance our mission while enjoying tax benefits and potentially setting up a lifetime stream of income.

Planned gifts

Bequest a planned gift or provide for the zoo in your will or living trust and discover this unique tax-advantaged way to support the zoo.  Learn more...

Honor and memorial gifts

Woodland Park Zoo’s Honor and Memorial Program is a wonderful way to recognize someone or mark a special occasion.

Matching gifts

Your gift may be doubled or even tripled! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Spouse and retiree gifts are also often matched. Please contact your employer’s HR department for details.

For more information on the giving vehicles above, or to discuss other philanthropic opportunities at the zoo, please contact Woodland Park Zoo’s Development Department at or 206.548.2500 x1125.
