#GivingZooDay, in partnership with #GivingTuesday, is a global day of giving that follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. This day is dedicated to giving back after days of shopping and saving money. 

Donating to your
Akron Zoo

On this #GivingZooDay, we cannot say thank you enough. Thank you for your continued support during this unique and challenging year. Faced with a nearly $3 million earned revenue loss, your Akron Zoo was able to continue to care for our animals and staff and not lose focus on our mission to save wildlife and wild places.

With your help, your Akron Zoo can continue to provide high quality care and welfare for the animals. Your contribution offers valuable support as the Akron Zoo strives to be one of the most vibrant wildlife conservation education institutions in the region. 

Because of you, your Akron Zoo continues to connect your life to wildlife while inspiring lifelong learning and conservation action. Because of you, your Akron Zoo will continue to thrive and grow. As we move forward together, we are grateful you’ve joined us today on #GivingZooDay and every day on this journey!
