Capital Campaign

A capital campaign is a focused effort to raise funds for a specific program or project that is central to the Zoo’s mission.

Campaigns take place over a set period of time with a financial goal established and are used to fund construction or renovation of new exhibits and buildings or other large projects that are essential for the Zoo’s ongoing organizational health and mission fulfillment.

For more information on how you can get involved, please contact Zoe Nieminen, Vice President & Chief Advancement Officer, at 404.624.5901 or

A Grand New View

Current Capital Campaign

The historic Cyclorama building will be revitalized and reborn as a one-of-a-kind event destination overlooking the wonders of an all-new African savanna, where African elephants roam a new and significantly expanded habitat. Other project highlights will include a new grand entry plaza and more. We look forward to continuing to share updates on our progress!
