Support Brookfield Zoo Digitally

The past year and a half has been incredibly challenging. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed unanticipated and urgent pressures on many businesses, including nonprofit cultural institutions such as the Chicago Zoological Society, which manages Brookfield Zoo. 

The health and safety of our animals, staff, and guests are of paramount importance. As of June 11, 2021, the zoo will be operating under the Illinois Phase 5 guidelines.  Please read below to learn what buildings and attractions are now open.

 

HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT BROOKFIELD ZOO

As a non-profit, Brookfield Zoo relies on ticket sales, donations, annual memberships, fundraising events, philanthropic gifts, and support from our community partners. Here are some ways you can help support us and the animals here.

DONATIONS

Consider making a donation that will immediately support our animal care and welfare programs, as well as other critical operations of the Chicago Zoological Society/Brookfield Zoo. Your contribution is so important and will be used in the area of greatest need at the zoo during this uncharted and challenging time.

AMAZON WISH LISTS

The CZS Associates young professionals’ group championed a project to find new ways to support CZS.  As a result, various Animal Programs departments here at Brookfield Zoo have created wish lists of items that would be beneficial to help in our care of animals.

Items purchased from our Amazon wish lists can be shipped directly to Brookfield Zoo. And make sure you shop using AmazonSmile and Amazon will donate 0.05% of the price of your eligible purchases to the Brookfield Zoo when you select our charitable organization (Chicago Zoological Society)! 

All gifts should be delivered to the South Gate entrance during business hours. Please let staff know you are donating Amazon wish list items. Thank you so much for your support in any and all forms! For any questions regarding wish list purchases, you can contact us at CZSAssociates@czs.org.
