The Lake Area Zoological Society’s Endowment Fund Supports Progress @ the Zoo

The Lake Area Zoological Society established the Endowment Fund so that the growth and quality of Bramble Park Zoo programs will continue to expand well into the future. Funds are used to insure the Zoo’s continued success by upgrading and expanding exhibits and facilities to educate the zoo visitors about wildlife both here in Northeastern South Dakota and around the world.

Why Should I Give to The Endowment Fund?

Funds are necessary to insure that the quality and upkeep of the Zoo continues to move forward. The Zoo’s endowment fund relies solely on the generosity of people in the community, such as you, who have a genuine love, not only for the animals but also, for the environment in which they live.

How Are Funds Used?

Gifts to the Endowment Fund will be protected for generations to come. The principle of any gift to the Endowment will not be spent, as long as the Zoo is in existence. The earnings from the Endowment Funds will be used for Zoo activities, and through this process they will protect the Zoo for many years.

The Endowment Funds are deposited and invested through the combined efforts of local investment institutions.

Consider This…

Funds given to the Zoological Society are used only for Zoo projects. Please consider making the Zoological Society a beneficiary in your estate.
