Your tax-deductible contribution to the Denver Zoological Foundation for the benefit of Denver Zoo advances our mission to secure a better world for animals through human understanding, and your support is integral to the Zoo’s future.
Since 1956, Denver Zoological Foundation, through a cooperative agreement with the City and County of Denver, has been responsible for managing and stewarding this incredible cultural and scientific community asset, including caring for the more than 4,000 animals representing more than 600 species that call Denver Zoo home.
For more than 120 years, Denver Zoo has been treasured by the citizens of Denver, as well as the State of Colorado and greater Rocky Mountain Region. And every day, Denver families spanning multiple generations, as well as newcomers to the region, make new and lasting memories at the Zoo. More than 2 million per year!
Thanks to generous donors, sponsors, and other funders, tens of thousands of students have access to our awe-inspiring science education programs – and many at a greatly discounted fee. Through these award-winning programs delivered on the Zoo’s campus and at schools and community organizations throughout the metro area and beyond, we share our passion for protecting wild animals and wild places in our backyards and around the globe.
