Memorial and Celebration Gifts

Give a gift to the Oakland Zoo

Making a gift 'in honor of' or 'in memory of' allows you to recognize loved ones on special occasions or express condolences by honoring the memory of a friend or relative. The Oakland Zoo will send notification to the specified party letting them know of your donation (gift amount not disclosed), and we will send you a tax receipt for your files.
