The Oklahoma Zoological Society, the nonprofit support group of the Oklahoma City Zoo, provides grants to offset the cost of zoo education programs. Grants are available for programs serving pre-K-12 students, as well as youth and adult organizations.
Applicants for the schools grant must select one of two program options: either classes on zoo grounds (for grades 3 and up only), or outreach programs at the awarded site. Grant amounts will be determined on a program-by-program basis.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit social service or civic organization or club; a school or organization in the Oklahoma City sales tax area; and/or a school with more than 50 percent of students receiving free or reduced lunches.
See the OKC Zoo website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
