Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Memorial Gifts

Thank you for considering the San Diego Zoo in planning a memorial tribute to your loved one. The contribution you make is a gift that helps us create and maintain a living legacy enjoyed by millions of people each year at our San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park.

When a memorial donation is made, the Zoo will send a handsome acknowledgment card on behalf of the loved one’s family. The family is also notified of each gift made (without specifying the amount.)

Friends and family members may wish to establish long-term recognition for a loved one:

  • For a gift of $1,000, your loved one can be listed on a beautiful group plaque at the Zoo or the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
  • For a gift of $2,500, he or she can be memorialized on a Memorial Column Tile at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
  • For a gift of $25,000, your loved one can be honored individually on a bench plaque at the Zoo or San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
