In 2012, the Honey Family Foundation made a three-year commitment to match donations made to the High Park Zoo’s operating budget through the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation, to a maximum of $50,000.00. In both 2012 and 2013 Friends of High Park Zoo has exceeded the $50,000 goal.
The Honey Family believes that High Park Zoo is a jewel in Toronto and stresses the importance of developing a sustainable funding strategy for 2013 and beyond. Ideally, this will mean City Council will restore its full funding of the Zoo and may also include corporate sponsorship. The Honey Family Foundation’s commitment is intended to buy the Zoo and associated parties some time to formulate a strategy, as well as to raise the profile of the Zoo and its importance in our city. Any donations made here will support the Zoo. To learn more about the work of Friends of High Park Zoo, go to their website.
