The Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo Endowment Foundation exists to ensure excellence in conservation and education programs, and meaningful recreational experiences with wildlife accessible to everyone. We also have a community of generous donors who support the endowment by:

  • Contributing an outright gift of cash or securities
  • Making a pledge, typically fulfilled over 1 to 3 years
  • Donating stock or other appreciated property
  • Providing a long-range contribution through a wide variety of estate plans to name a fund
  • Naming Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo in their will, as the beneficiary of life insurance, as part of a trust, or in their Individual Retirement Accounts
