Emergency Fund

On June 26, Elmwood Park Zoo opened its gates for the first time since its mandatory four-month-long closure. It is because of our community — our donors, our members, our friends — the zoo was able to survive the effects of COVID 19; however, we still have a challenging road ahead of us.

The financial gap left by the pandemic is large and we still need the help of our Champions. Please consider continuing your support for the zoo as we regain our footing and get back on track to bringing you a better zoo each and every year.

Philanthropy has never been more important than it is today, and is a characteristic that once learned, can make a world of difference.  #JoinTheHerd is the zoo’s new community of grassroots fundraisers helping to raise money for the care of our Animals.

Don’t forget to double your donation through your company’s matching gift program!
