A Wise Investment

When asked why Robin and Dennis Zdroik, of Greenfield, designated the Zoological Society of Milwaukee (ZSM) in their estate planning, the answer was simple: “We like to see our money spent wisely,” says Robin. “We know the Zoological Society handles donations appropriately.” The Zdroiks have been members of the ZSM’s Simba Circle for 10 years. The group was formed to thank those who’ve created a planned or deferred gift to support the ZSM. The Zdroiks love visiting the Milwaukee County Zoo. “We’re both cat lovers,” says Dennis. Their most memorable Zoo experience was when lions came face to face with them against the glass in the outside lion exhibit. “It was thrilling,” says Robin. The Zdroiks have also attended annual dinners for Simba members where they’ve learned fascinating Zoo-animal facts. “They show interesting videos at the dinners,” says Robin. “You learn about things most Zoo visitors do not. You feel privy to special information.” The Zdroiks feel confident about the future of the Zoo. “The Zoo cares about the animals, and we’re gratified that future generations will also experience the animals at the Zoo,” says Robin.
