Become Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart donors are our closest friends and most invested advocates

Generous annual gifts of $500 or more have helped the zoo play an essential role in our community since 2010—connecting people to nature and creating a sustainable future for wildlife. Your generosity will make a difference here and around the world. Every gift helps the zoo build a better community — your community. Thank you for investing in a more sustainable future for wildlife and people.


Join Our Pack

When you join the Wild at Heart donor pack you will enjoy benefits such as a zoo family membership, special events and personal tours. But more importantly, your generosity will allow Woodland Park Zoo to continue making a difference in the community and around the world.

With your Wild at Heart status, you will receive a zoo membership*:

  • Unlimited access for one year for two adults and their children or grandchildren plus one flexible guest
  • Half-price admission for up to four guests per visit
  • Four one-time-use guest passes
  • Four complimentary animal feeding/experience passes
  • Five complimentary carousel rides

*membership has a fair market value of $360. You may choose to waive these benefits by contacting us at 206.548.2491. Donors who give through a private foundation, donor-advised fund, United Way, Benevity and other similar organizations cannot receive any goods or services from Woodland Park Zoo because the initial contribution is eligible for a tax deduction. Event tickets, table sponsorships and zoo memberships are not eligible for directed gifts because they contain benefits that are not tax deductible.
