Forever Wild Society

Recognizing Our Supporters

In an effort to encourage planned gifts, the Seneca Park Zoo Society has established the Forever Wild Society.
The Zoo Society established the Forever Wild Society in November 2012, honoring those in the community that have taken a great interest in the future of the Zoo through planned giving. They will be acknowledged with a certificate and a pin as well as invitations to special events, including an annual exclusive Society event, recognition in the Zoo’s quarterly newsletter, ZooNooz, within the Zoo and in our Annual Report.

The Forever Wild Society honors those who have given a deferred gift of $2,000 or more to the Zoo.
