24 Hours to Give Where Your Heart Is


Because of your support and generosity, $49,903 was raised in just 24 hours on the Big Day of Giving!

Your gift to the Sacramento Zoological Society on the Big Day of Giving helps the Zoo to continue in its mission to inspire appreciation, respect and a connection with wildlife and nature through education, conservation and recreation.
