Our donors deserve special recognition for the role they play in fulfilling the Zoo’s mission to connect people, animals, and the natural world, which is why we created Friends of the Minnesota Zoo and the Keepers’ Club.
Friends of the Minnesota Zoo
Friends of the Minnesota Zoo is a group of individuals who have taken a leadership role through their $250 or more annual donations to the Zoo. In return for their investment in the Zoo’s conservation and education work, Friends are rewarded with opportunities to enjoy a variety of special benefits and privileges that deepen their commitment to wildlife and the Zoo. We invite you to become a Friend of the Minnesota Zoo today!
The Keepers' Club is designed for individuals who would like to make donations from $5,000 to $25,000 in honor of an animal on the Medtronic Minnesota Trail or in Russia’s Grizzly Coast. Gifts may be paid out over up to five years. Your contribution will be recognized on the Keepers’ Club sign at the Minnesota Trail’s Maritz Family Lodge or at Russia’s Grizzly Coast.
