Doing Our Part

All of us at the Buffalo Zoo continue to grieve alongside the families, friends, and loved ones affected by the horrific, racially motivated shooting in our community. We stand resolved to do all we can to root out racism and intolerance in our community and provide support and love to those affected by this senseless tragedy. To that end, a portion of Zoo admission proceeds from your visit on Saturday, May 21, and Sunday, May 22, will be donated to the Buffalo 5/14 Survivors Fund.
In partnership with Tops, the National Compassion Fund has established the Buffalo 5/14 Survivors Fund to provide direct financial assistance to the survivors of the deceased and those directly affected by this tragedy. One hundred percent (100%) of the contributions donated to this Fund will go directly to victims and survivors of this atrocity. The National Compassion Fund is the leading authority on financial assistance to victims of mass casualty events. It is a subsidiary of the National Center for Victims of Crime, the nation’s leading resource and advocacy center for victims of all types of crime.
Thank you for your visit. Now more than ever, it matters.
