Care and Commitment for Our Future  
There are so many ways to make charitable donations that will impact Binder Park Zoo. Consider making immediate donations to the Zoo or select a plan to provide strength and sustainability for the Zoo’s ongoing mission in the future.

Options for your reflection:

  • Cash donations
  • Charitable gift annuities with funds or securities that are set aside for the Zoo
  • Trust funds naming the Zoo as beneficiary
  • Retirement sharing with the Zoo
  • Life insurance – naming the zoo as beneficiary
  • Other estate gifting with cash, securities, real estate, or other property (tax advantage)
  • IRA’s
  • Setting up endowments through local community foundations

Binder Park Zoo is more than a fun place for families to build memories.  Our work helps to protect species that are critically threatened or endangered.  We connect classroom learning to real life experience. When you share your resources with the Zoo you invest in this regional community in a way that has a lasting effect.  Thank you for impacting lives, the environment, and the animals that bring us laughter and awe.
