Tax Revenue
The Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District

Saint Louis ZooExceptional access to the District’s institutions has been achieved because City and County taxpayers support the entities through their annual property taxes. For more than forty years, the District Board members have been quiet and effective stewards of taxpayer funds, committed to ensuring that funds are efficiently spent to enhance institutional quality and access. More than ninety-nine (99%) of the District’s net tax revenues, of nearly $1.4 billion, have supported the institutions’ programs and improvements. In recent years, the Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District has distributed net tax revenues that total more than seventy million dollars annually.

These tax revenues provide a significant portion of each institution’s operating budget. Generous donations, food and gift sales, membership fees, admission charges to special exhibits and other revenue sources provide the remaining operating funds. Strong leadership has also been a crucial component in each institution’s success.
