Zoo for All

Zoo For All Color 300x218


Connecting kids and animals, strengthening families, and inspiring people to care – this is the mission of Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo and something our team is proud to carry out each day. But we know that for some families, a trip to the Zoo may present financial and other barriers.

Our Zoo For All: Community Ticket Grants Program is designed to make a trip to the Zoo more accessible. Each year the Zoo awards nearly $200,000 worth of free admission tickets to area nonprofit organizations who work with children and families that may face barriers in taking a trip to the Zoo. The goal of this program is to help overcome barriers that may exist for visitation and ensure that all area children and other diverse audiences have the opportunity to connect with our amazing animals.

If you are interested in applying for a Zoo For All: Community Ticket Grant for the 2022 Season, please complete the application below by 12:00pm on February 15, 2022. Once you submit your application you will receive a confirmation email. We plan to announce approvals by April 1, 2022.

If you have questions about this application, or our Zoo For All program, please email and your question will be routed to the appropriate staff member.
