Monetary Donations to the Zoo
The Zoo relies on community support in order to meet our operational and conservation goals. To assist us with providing an educational venue that supports international conservation efforts and scientific research, the Oklahoma Zoological Society, or ZooFriends, was founded in 1954 to support the Zoo in their efforts. Since its founding, ZooFriends has provided the Zoo with over $155 million in financial support.
If you are interested in donating to the Zoo, you may do so through the Oklahoma Zoological Society. Donations can be made online, or you may visit the OZS's membership office, located at the east end of the Zoo's main entrance.
