Support Us

Shedd Aquarium has been connecting people to the living world for more than 80 years. Thanks to the support of our generous members, donors and volunteers, today we inspire more than 2 million guests annually, care for 32,000 animals, conduct global conservation research and welcome thousands of schoolchildren free of charge!

There are so many ways to support us: through individual gifts, corporate gifts, membership, the Aquarium Council premier donor society, our Auxiliary Board, fundraising events from our formal gala to our fun golf tournament, the adopt-an-animal program and Amazon Smile. Even going on a travel adventure with Shedd to wonderful wild places supports our work. And the gift of time — through volunteering — is invaluable. Explore the different ways you can support Shedd and be a part of all that we do!
