Your Zoo Needs You.

Make a Donation Because Oakland Zoo is a non-profit, we rely on your donations to provide year-round financial support to ensure the health and well-being of all the animals at the Zoo as well as education and outreach, conservation and animal welfare programs.

When you make a donation of $1,000 or greater you will automatically be enrolled in our Friends of the Wild membership program. Remember, every donation, whether big or small, makes a huge difference here at your Zoo.
