As a registered charity, the zoo depends on your financial support. You can specify where you would like your donation to go, or allow us to direct your support where it is most needed. If you want your gift to fund a specific program and don't see it in our drop-down menu, just make a comment in the Message section.

Become a Volunteer 

Share your skills — and your passion for wildlife and wild places — as a volunteer with the Calgary Zoo and help us achieve our vision to be Canada’s leader in wildlife conservation.


Commemorate Someone Special

With a donation of $5,000, you can honour a loved one by dedicating a bench in their name. The commemorative bench will feature a custom engraved plaque, and remain in place for ten years. We’ll work with you to find the perfect spot at the zoo.


Planned Giving

A planned gift to the Calgary Zoo can take many forms — a bequest in your will, gifts of securities, and more. We can work with you to create a meaningful plan that can help minimize your taxes and create a lasting legacy.
