Planned Giving


Wills, trusts and estate plans are all excellent ways to leave a planned gift and help ensure the future of the Zoo. These gifts demonstrate your support for our institution and help provide the stability and security that we need to guarantee a bright future.

In many cases, planned gifts can help to:

  • Reduce estate, gift and/or current income taxes.
  • Reduce or eliminate taxes on capital gains at the time of the gift.
  • Provide a secure income stream for the rest of your life.
  • Provide additional income for your heirs.

For more information about the planned giving program, please contact Diane David, Director of Development, at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens at (904) 757-3937 or by e-mail. All inquiries are confidential.
