Planned Giving

Consider including the Detroit Zoological Society in your will or trust

A gift to the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) that is part of a thoughtful, comprehensive estate plan will provide a legacy for future generations. Your planned gift will allow the DZS to continue a tradition of leadership in metro Detroit’s cultural, educational and recreational community, as well as the zoological community.  You may even be able to make a significant gift that was not possible during your lifetime.


The Wildlife Legacy Circle recognizes those who have included the Detroit Zoological Society in their estate plan and offers exclusive membership benefits.

To learn more about supporting the Detroit Zoological Society through a planned gift, please contact Kayne Karnbach (248) 336-5754, or email us.
