Grow Wild SocietyBegin your donor membership and become a Zoo partner.
The Grow Wild Society is at the forefront of the evolution of the Zoo. It was formed to develop, enhance, and grow a new base of support for the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium; to cultivate and engage donors; and to help advance the Zoo’s mission of caring for the animals we exhibit while ensuring the future of wildlife worldwide.
How Donation Works
All Memberships in the Grow Wild Society includes:
- Behind-the-scenes tours guided by curators with special access not available to the general public
- Special events at the Zoo
- Opportunities to invite your friends to join you at special Zoo events
- Unique recognition for Grow Wild Society Members
Membership in the Grow Wild Society (GWS) is based on annual donations to the Zoo. Membership lasts for a 12-month period from the date that the qualifying donation amount is received. Gifts may be donated annually, pledged and paid quarterly or over a 12-month period with monthly contributions.
GWS levels of support are categorized by annual gifts of $1,000, $2,500, $5,000, or $10,000. For more information, please contact Emily Beyer, Development Officer, by email at email@example.com or via telephone at 412-365-2503.
