Zoo Pride

It’s a whole new pride!

Zoo Pride is Denver Zoo’s gift recognition society. Donors to Denver Zoo whose annual cumulative giving is at least $1,000 are recognized in this exclusive group. Zoo Pride donors get the satisfaction of knowing that 100% of their gift is tax-deductible and helps transform the Zoo every day.

As a sign of our appreciation for their generous gifts, Zoo Pride donors receive unlimited daytime admission to Denver Zoo, special invitations to programs and events throughout the year and a staff liaison to contact directly when planning a visit or when questions arise.

With great appreciation, we thank our Family of Donors for ensuring Denver Zoo can continue its mission to secure a better world for animals through human understanding.


Zoo Pride donors support every facet of Denver Zoo's mission from outstanding animal care to educating the world’s next generation of biologists, zoologists, veterinarians and conservationists. Denver Zoo and Zoo Pride partners help to secure a better world for animals through human understanding.

Zoo Pride gifts are cumulative and can be made to a number of different designations at the Zoo. Some examples:

  • General operations
  • Conservation
  • Education
  • Benches
  • Carousel
  • Denver Zoo Scholarship Fund

Zoo Pride donors making a difference

Meet Jim Michael and Lisa Lutz

Jim Michael and Lisa Lutz have supported Denver Zoo for years in a variety of ways, and continue to do so.

Jim’s business has contributed to rhino conservation efforts in the past, while Lisa has been a Zoo volunteer since 2013.

The couple recently became Zoo Pride supporters after adopting a bench in memory of their nieces, Andrea “Andee” and Taylor Michael, who sadly passed away in 2009.

“Supporting the Zoo was a great opportunity for us because Andee wanted to be a vet, and Taylor wanted to be a teacher. What better place to have education, kids and animals come together than the Zoo?” said Jim.

The bench will be a special place for the family to celebrate the lives of Andee and Taylor, while the support of Jim and Lisa will help Denver Zoo continue as an organization where education comes alive.

We thank you, Jim and Lisa.
