Planned giving is a generous way to support the zoo by leaving a portion of your will or trust in a planned arrangement. Benefits to creating a planned gift can even provide you with income, including tax savings, increased cash flow or reduced estate taxes but perhaps the most important benefit is the peace of mind knowing that you have made a difference to the future of animal well-being.
Planned giving helps the zoo
Planned gifts ensure the financial longevity and success of Utah's Hogle Zoo. Not only will your support help care for the animal residents, you're ensuring long-term conservation initiatives are funded to benefit the natural world.

Princess Alice Society
Those that have given to the zoo via planned giving are formally inducted into the exclusive Princess Alice Society. Our planned giving society derives its name from the much beloved Princess Alice, an Asian elephant who came to the Zoo in 1916. Nickel and dime donations from area school children helped raise $3,250 to purchase her from a traveling circus. Over time, Princess Alice became a major presence at the Zoo, dominating headlines with her occasional “escapes” from the Zoo’s first home in Liberty Park.
The Princess Alice Society recognizes and honors exceptional donors who have generously included Utah’s Hogle Zoo in their long-term estate plans. Such philanthropic support helps ensure sufficient resources for years to come. Our Princess Alice Society members have taken our mission to heart and truly are champions for wildlife!
Benefits include yearly recognition through our exclusive Princess Alice Society dinner parties, and more! Begin your planned giving journey today by consulting your financial advisor.
