Help Kids go to the Zoo with ZOO4U!
Each year, there are many children, families, and school groups within our community who cannot afford to visit the Zoo. Resulting from a desire to better serve the community, the Santa Barbara Zoo's ZOO4U program was created. The program, funded by caring community members like you, provides free admission to the growing community of schools in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties who would not otherwise be able to afford a visit to the Zoo. Through continued collaboration with the program's generous donors, ZOO4U also serves social service organizations that support underserved children and families within our community. Children and families who would otherwise not be able to visit will be able to experience the Zoo and all of its wonders.
Because our income from admissions is so crucial to supporting the Zoo's operations, we can only continue to give children and families free admission if we have the support of friends like you. Giving to the ZOO4U program is an excellent way to help both the Zoo and children in your community.
