You Make a Difference!

There are several ways you can help Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo accomplish its mission of conservation, education and family recreation. By supporting the Connecticut Zoological Society (CZS), you help us share the wonders of animals and nature with the more that 250,000 visitors annually both at the Zoo and around the state and region through our outreach efforts. All gifts to the Society are greatly appreciated and go a long way toward saving wildlife and protecting wild places.

The Society's Development Department coordinates and plans the Zoo's fundraising efforts. The Department identifies individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations who care about the mission of Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo. Contributions of cash, stocks, in-kind, and planned gifts result in enhanced animal exhibits, expanded educational programming, important conservation and breeding efforts, additional visitor services, and the long-term sustainability of the Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo.

The Development Department also ensures that all CZS fundraising efforts comply with applicable ethical and non-profit standards.

If you would like to help or have questions, please contact our Development Office at (203) 394-6573.
