25 years of enriching community life: Indianapolis Zoo

This year the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust is celebrating 25 years of community grantmaking in Indiana. To honor Mrs. Pulliam’s legacy and her appreciation for the importance of having vibrant communities, the Trust supports the Indianapolis Zoo to enrich community life in Marion County.

During her life, Mrs. Pulliam was instrumental in preserving the Arabian oryx, and the Trust has since aided in preserving Sumatran tigers, orangutans and the African lion in her honor. Over the past 25 years the Trust has awarded the Indianapolis Zoo $4.9 million. Two $1.5 million grants helped create the Nina Mason Pulliam Beacon of Hope and International Orangutan Center and the Indianapolis Zoo Global Center for Species Survival. The Global Center for Species Survival consists of a team of conservation scientists headquartered at the zoo supporting more than 10,000 plant and animal scientists around the world.
