Leave Your Legacy

You can support the long-term needs and goals of protecting our animals. Make a difference for years to come by remembering the Zoo in your will or trust.

Many Oakland Zoo supporters have included us in their wills or trusts. Their gifts, and yours should you choose to join them, strengthens and helps ensure the future of the Zoo. We are especially grateful to you for a bequest, setting up a life income plan, or some other type of legacy gift. We'll recognize your commitment by inviting you to join our Dr. Joel Parrott Legacy Circle. We recognize Legacy Circle members in our publications, and with invitations to special events. If you have already included the Zoo with a legacy gift, we would love to have you join our Legacy Circle.

If you would like information about remembering Oakland Zoo with your legacy gift, or would like to join the Dr. Joel Parrott Legacy Circle, please contact Emma Lee Twitchell, Director of Development, at (510) 632-9525 ext. 153, or etwitchell@oaklandzoo.org.
