At the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, we lead and inspire by connecting people and wildlife. support from donors is the driving force behind our animal husbandry, educational experiences, and global conservation work. Donations ensure the sustainable co-existence of people and animals. Gifts from people like you is what fills the gap between our earned revenue and the costs of providing exceptional support for the animals, our animal care team and our guests. Your generosity creates experiences that bond families, inspire students, advance conservation around the world and spark a lifelong appreciation for the animals we all love.
The Zoo is only a world-class institution because of the generous support of our members, donors, guests, neighbors, and community. Your partnership helps shape the future of the Zoo, guarantees a fun and welcoming environment for our guests, and ensures our animals are happy and healthy. Make a difference today with a donation that makes real impact you can see (and hear!) on your Zoo.
