Become a Forever Member

The Emporia Friends of the Zoo are here for you; please contact us today to discuss any of these possibilities in making your legacy happen.

Will or Trusts

A bequest is simple and allows multiple options for supporting the David Traylor Zoo through EFOZ.

Retirement Accounts & IRAs

Consider adding EFOZ as the first, second or final beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) or other retirement account.

Qualified Charitable Donations

Consider donating your required annual distributions which allows the donor to avoid recognizing the income.

Life Insurance

This is a wonderful gift that can reduce taxes that may otherwise be due upon your death. You can name EFOZ as a beneficiary or co-beneficiary by amending an existing policy or even purchasing a new policy. This is a great way to create a conservation legacy.

Certificate of Deposits & Bank Accounts

Certificates of Deposits, savings accounts or other saving plans can pass immediately to EFOZ as a Payable on Death (POD) beneficiary of the account. Contact your financial institution to set this up today.

Designate Your Gift

Do you have a favorite educational program or animal at the David Traylor Zoo? You can protect the future of that program or animal by designating your gift.
