Legacy Giving

An estate gift to Shedd creates a lasting legacy for you and your family. 

Many of the first fishes in Shedd’s collection traveled to Chicago aboard the Nautilus, a Pullman railroad car custom-built to transport aquatic animals. The Nautilus Society honors those who leave a legacy gift to Shedd using a variety of giving vehicles ensuring what you love most about Shedd will endure into the future. By becoming a member of the Nautilus Society, you will provide your loved ones with generations of Shedd memories while also addressing your financial goals.
