The Women's Board

The Women's Board of Lincoln Park Zoo
Formally established in 1977, the Women's Board of Lincoln Park Zoo is comprised of about 90 active members from Chicago and surrounding suburbs. The Women's Board was created and organized to provide supportive funds and service to The Lincoln Park Zoological Society and to aid the Society in its efforts to improve Lincoln Park Zoo.

Current Pledge
The Women's Board hosts the largest fundraiser for Lincoln Park Zoo, Zoo Ball, which consistently raises more than $500,000. The Board is now raising funds to maintain this community treasure in Chicago.

Historical Pledges
The Women's Board recently completed its $2 million pledge to Nature Boardwalk. Over the years, the Women's Board has contributed more than $20 million to help the zoo complete projects including the Flamingo Pond and scenic overlook, Regenstein Center for African Apes, the East Gate entry plaza and the Kovler Lion House outdoor exhibit.
