Monthy Donor Program

Hi, I'm Steve Briman!

The Topeka Zoo has been a source of many happy memories.  The illustrated story represents my walk through the Zoo from the time I was a child in the 60s to present day. I’ve experienced the Zoo from the perspective of a child, a parent, and now as a grandparent. The joy of laughter from my grandkids at the sight of a lorikeet landing on my head is one of my favorite recent memories! I hope you can find your own memories and experiences in the story too…

As a community, we are fortunate to have a zoo that has provided us a lifetime of experiences. The Topeka Zoo is growing and expanding because of the combination of public and private sector support. To help perpetuate the growth and quality for future generations, I am asking you to join me in supporting the Zoo’s NEW MONTHLY DONOR PROGRAM. As a monthly donor, you will receive invitations to exclusive quarterly programs with our Zoo Director; an opportunity for inside-access to our future programming and plans.  Your gift supports world-class animal care, conservation initiatives, and STEAM-based education programs; improving the quality of life for our community.

Will YOU help create new stories and memories at the Topeka Zoo?
