Become a Zoologist with the Friends of the Wild

Friends of the Wild Donor Program


The Oakland Zoo’s Friends of the Wild Zoologists are donors whose contributions to the Annual Fund are $1,000 or more in a fiscal year. As a donor to the Zoo's Friends of the Wild at the Zoologist level, you will have access to a variety of benefits available only to our close supporters.



Friends of the Wild Zoologists are community-minded leaders and philanthropists that invest in the Oakland Zoo because they believe that it is an important resource for our Bay Area communities. Your gift benefits the Zoo by providing ongoing financial support that ensures the health and well-being of all the animals at the Zoo and provides for education and outreach, conservation, and animal welfare programs.

To make a contribution, click the 'Contribute' button above or download a printable donation form. For questions or more information, please call Matt Rasmussen at (510) 632-9525 x154 or email mrasmussen@oaklandzoo.org.
