Leave a Legacy Gift

Wildlife Heritage Guild

Leave a legacy that will make a difference in the future of the Sacramento Zoo. The Wildlife Heritage Guild is a group of special individuals who have remembered the Sacramento Zoological Society in their estate plans. When you join the zoo’s Wildlife Heritage Guild, you create a legacy that will protect endangered animals and support educational programming and wildlife conservation efforts for future generations.

The nonprofit Sacramento Zoo depends on the generosity of private contributions from those who value the zoo and its role in their lives and community.  You can make a meaningful and long-term investment in the zoo through a planned gift such as a will, trust, life insurance policy or other deferred gift. Planned gifts can also provide substantial tax benefits to the donor.
