Support Education, Conservation, Zoological Research and Recreation.


The ZOOfund for Kids program is a grant program assisting schools and non-profit organizations by providing an opportunity for children to attend a Zoo education class and experience wildlife and nature on a personal level. Since its creation in 1997, more than 430,000 children have been served.

The Oklahoma Zoological Society (OZS), a nonprofit organization supporting the OKC Zoo’s mission, provides these grants to offset the cost of zoo education programs. Grants are available for Pre-K to 12th grade students, libraries and non-profit youth and adult organizations on a competitive basis.
