Shedd is a happening place because our donors and members make things happen.

There are many ways to support Shedd. You can become a member, join the Aquarium Council, or make a gift to the annual fund or include the aquarium in your estate plans with a legacy gift.

There are so many reasons to support Shedd — actually 32,500 of them. (That’s how many animals we’ve got.) Need more reasons? How about our nationally recognized programs in education, conservation and research? Plus, there are a lot of neat perks that come with helping Shedd.

In one year...
