Donate Zoo Fund

For more than 60 years, Cleveland Zoological Society donors like you have helped Cleveland Metroparks Zoo thrive, grow and evolve. As the nonprofit partner to one of the top Zoos in the nation, the Zoo Society is proud to provide more than $2 million in operating support to the Zoo each year, and your gifts make that possible.


Own a piece of Zoo history for your donation to the ZooFund

From November 1 through December 31, 2019, you can own an exclusive piece of the historic Monkey Island. Commissioned by the Cuyahoga County Relief Administration, Monkey Island first opened in 1934 and has been home to a variety of species of monkeys. Monkey Island was removed this year for the construction of the expanded rhino yard, and those making a $100 or more donation to the ZooFund can claim a piece of the original habitat.

We are grateful for your passion for the Zoo and your dedication to its long-term success. We are excited to connect members, donors like you, and the greater Cleveland community with the science, animal care and conservation work taking place each day at the Zoo. We recognize your love for the Zoo’s many species, great and small, and the need to secure a future for their ambassadors in the wild.

We can’t do what we do without you. Philanthropic support is critical to these efforts and ultimately to the continued success of the Zoo you love.

Thank you for signing up!
