Leave a Legacy Gift to the Big Bear Zoo through the Nay Foundation

The Big Bear Alpine Zoo is a rehabilitation facility and sanctuary for indigenous wild animals that have been permanently impacted by human behavior and unable to return to the wild.

The Big Bear Alpine Zoo is funded through charitable donations from supporters such as yourself. The Nay Foundation provides a way to leave a legacy gift to the Big Bear Alpine Zoo.  Our Development Director is available to work with you and your financial advisor to  provide information and details as to the ways a legacy gift can be made.

Whether it be a one-time donation, an annual membership or a legacy gift, your contribution will help to support the rehabilitation of animals for generations to come.
