DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT

THE ELEPHANT TREK MILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE MEANS YOUR GIFT WILL MAKE TWICE THE IMPACT.

WHEN WE EVOLVE, THEY THRIVE.

Giving would mean the world to the animals we work so hard to save. As the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s expertise in animal care, conservation, education, and horticulture continues to grow, our habitats need to grow with it.  In 2018, we launched the More Home to Roam capital campaign with an ambitious goal of $150 million.  The campaign is gaining momentum, thanks to large and small gifts, but we need your help to achieve our goal to dramatically transform our habitats and expand community and conservation efforts, here and around the world.
