Happy Hollow Foundation is dedicated to supporting, advocating for and enhancing San José’s treasured Happy Hollow Park & Zoo.
The foundation, which was established in 1958, continues the park and zoo’s legacy by providing donor stewardship and forging community connections. We support Happy Hollow’s efforts to provide an affordable, sustainable, conservation-oriented outdoor adventure for visitors of all ages.
Happy Hollow Foundation is the registered 501(c)3 nonprofit partner of Happy Hollow Park & Zoo, which is owned and operated by the City of San José.
Your gift supports Happy Hollow’s mission to connect people to nature through play. Donations fund life science lessons at economically disadvantaged schools, conservation efforts locally and around the world, new exhibits, and much more.
Danny the Dragon’s Dreambuilders are Happy Hollow Foundation's closest partners, investing in Happy Hollow with annual gifts of $1,000 or more, and supporting the foundation’s mission to advocate for, support and enhance Happy Hollow Park & Zoo.
Every child in Silicon Valley deserves the opportunity to learn and play in our beautiful park and zoo. Unfortunately, many schools lack the resources to fund such field trips. Happy Hollow Foundation’s new education initiative aims to break down this barrier, particularly for local low-income schools.
