Heritage Guild


The long-term support made through generous legacy gifts has made it possible for San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance to reintroduce California condors to their native habitat, share the wonders of wildlife with millions of children each year, and make scientific breakthroughs, like developing a life-saving milk formula for elephant calves in Kenya. As we take our next steps in securing the future for wildlife, your legacy giving is critical to grow our tradition of excellence and help create a world where all life can thrive for generations to come. With your support, we can meet the conservation challenges of today and tomorrow.

The Heritage Guild is an honorary society established to honor and thank our friends who have included the Zoological Society of San Diego (dba San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance) in their estate plans. They have done so by naming the Zoological Society of San Diego beneficiary to wills, living trusts, IRAs, and other life-income gifts.


In addition to setting an example for others to follow as well as the prestige that is associated with being a member, the Heritage Guild offers special benefits like:
  • Commemorative membership certificate and pin
  • Exclusive invitations to special events at the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park
  • Annual subscription to San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance Journal


If you have included the Zoological Society of San Diego in your estate plans, you are eligible to become a member of the Heritage Guild. Please fill out the Heritage Guild Enrollment Form and send it back to us (contact information listed below) so we can recognize your support and say, "Thank you." Your generosity will secure the future of wildlife.

Even if you prefer not to be recognized as a member, we request that you notify us of your future gift intentions. Among other reasons, this allows us to note your exact wishes in our records.
