There are multiple opportunities to contribute to the preservation of wildlife and wild places this Giving Tuesday on Tuesday, Nov. 28.
John Ball Zoo is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to animal care and inspiring the community to be actively engaged in conservation through fun, meaningful and inspiring educational experiences, community events and experiences that can’t be found in books, TV or online.
“John Ball Zoo is incredibly grateful for the community’s support, and the work we do to support wildlife conservation, educational opportunities and economic impact in Grand Rapids and beyond,” said Gina Schulz, chief advancement officer at John Ball Zoo. “Donations made on Giving Tuesday and year-round help create a better world for both animals and people.”
