Annual Fund

Special Gifts

You can also include the Dallas Zoo in your plans for special contributions, including planned giving, memorial or tribute gifts, legacy gifts, matching funds, in-kind gifts to the Zoo, or even buying personalized bricks that live on-grounds at the Dallas Zoo.

A special reminder: You may also send gifts of stock, mutual funds, or other securities. These types of gifts not only help further the Dallas Zoo’s mission, they also provide contributors with significant tax benefits.
