Tribute Brick Campaign

Looking for a timeless, heartfelt gift for someone wild about the Zoo?

Tribute bricks not only serve as a celebration of friends and family but they also provide building blocks for our future, helping to make Riverbanks Zoo a better place for the animals, our children and our community. Donate a brick in his or her honor and the family name or your special message will become a part of Riverbanks’ history.

Act Now!

A limited number of 4x8 bricks are available in the Zoo’s Entrance Plaza.

Reserve yours today with a charitable gift of $100 per brick.

Miniature paperweight-size replicas of your 4x8 bricks can now also be ordered and picked up at the Zoo for an additional donation of $30 per brick—or we can ship the replica for $5 more.

How it Works

A certificate of engraving will be mailed to the brick donor within 5–10 days of receiving the order. Orders received by April 1 will be installed by May 31; orders received by July 1 will be installed by August 31; orders received by October 1 will be installed by November 30; and orders received by January 1 will be installed by February 28. Inscriptions are limited to 18 characters per line, up to 3 lines per brick (characters include spaces, punctuation, ampersands, etc.) A certificate of installation indicating the brick’s location will be mailed to the brick donor within 5–10 days of installation.
