"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
-- Native American proverb

When you gaze into the eyes of a majestic tiger or giggle at the playful antics of a young baboon you are experiencing a few of Earth's precious animals that could become extinct within our lifetime. As someone who cares about animals and zoos, you can join us in our fight against extinction and play an integral role in helping us leave a wildlife legacy for future generations. By using planning techniques, it is possible to make a significant gift for animals and zoos tomorrow while receiving great personal benefits today:

  • Feel good and make a difference

  • Receive a charitable deduction

  • Avoid capital gains

  • Reduce estate taxes

  • Increase your cash flow

  • Pass on family values

Call Chuck Levengood, Director of Development, at 336-7205 or at clevengood@senecazoo.org and ask for more information about giving to your Zoo. We would be glad to work with you and your financial advisor to determine the best plan for you. It's a chance to make a significant gift to the Zoo and also protect your estate for your family, loved ones and other organizations.
