Contribute to the Zoo

Share your passion for Micke Grove Zoo and the wildlife of your community and beyond. Our donors invest in Micke Grove Zoo because they recognize it as an important resource for the people of San Joaquin County and the surrounding communities. Your gifts, whether financial or as tangible supplies, benefit the Zoo by providing ongoing financial support that ensures the health and well-being of all the animals at the Zoo while enhancing education, outreach, conservation, and animal welfare programs.


Donations to the zoo can be monetary or gifts of supplies requested by staff and volunteers on the Zoo Wish List. Individuals that choose to make financial donations are encouraged to make checks payable to the Micke Grove Zoological Society (MGZS), the Zoo's supportive non-profit. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
