Monthly Giving Program

Other donation opportunities Join the Oakland Zoo's Monthly Giving Program, and support the Zoo on an ongoing basis by designating a set donation to be deducted from your credit card each month. This program is the "greenest" way to donate, by eliminating checks and reducing administrative costs - so your donation goes even further in supporting our animals. Even a small amount every month can add up in a big way for the Zoo!

  • It's convenient, efficient and 100% tax deductible.
  • You'll receive special updates about the Zoo through our Zoo E-Newsletter.
  • You'll receive a summary of your monthly donations at the end of the calendar year.
To become a monthly donor, please contact Mary Burns at or call (510) 632-9525 x159.
