  • Recognition within the new front entry of the zoo
  • Recognition in annual report
  • Invitation to annual recognition breakfast
  • Invitation to exhibit openings and special previews at the zoo
  • Individualized behind-the-scenes tour for you and your family (offered annually)

Memorial Bench

The Tulsa Zoo touches the lives of more than half a million people each year. With this impact on the community, it’s no wonder so many choose the Tulsa Zoo to celebrate with honorary and memorial gifts.

Honor a friend or loved one with a memorial bench at the Tulsa Zoo. Benches are located throughout the zoo and offer a unique way to memorialize loved ones by creating a place to visit and remember them. Memorial benches include a plaque that can be customized according to the donor’s instructions. Tulsa Zoo staff will assist the donor in determining the location of the bench.

For a contribution of $2,500 you may select a bench inside Lost Kingdom, all other benches around the zoo are $1,500.

You are welcome to donate online or through the mail at:

Tulsa Zoo
Attn: Development
6421 East 36th Street North
Tulsa, OK 74115

Please provide the name and address of the person you wish to honor, as well as the occasion. We will notify the person being honored of your generous donation. There is truly no better way to honor someone than with a gift to an organization that has touched the lives of so many.

For more information about honorary gifts or the Memorial Bench program, please contact us at 918.669.6636 or sahn@tulsazoo.org.
