Planned Giving

Since the Detroit Zoo’s founding in 1928, we’ve been a leader in animal welfare from naturalistic and spacious animal habitats to cutting edge veterinary care.

When you include the Detroit Zoological Society in your estate plans, you ensure that the Detroit Zoological Society can maintain this humane care for generations to come.

Leave the DZS in Your Estate Plans

If you’d like to leave your legacy at the Detroit Zoo or Belle Isle Nature Center, consider including the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) in your estate plans. When you arrange a planned gift to the DZS, you join a circle of thoughtful and caring supporters who create meaningful connections between people, animals and the natural world so all can thrive.
