The Fresno Chaffee Zoo Wildlife Conservation Fund was established in 2006 to promote understanding and enjoyment of rare, threatened and endangered animals and their habitats and to support zoological research that will directly benefit captive animal management. 

In 2014, Fresno Chaffee Zoo Conservation Committee awarded grants to 35 projects located in over 25 different countries. Fifteen of those projects have long-term support and 20 were awarded a one year grant. The Zoo designated more than $60,000 for the Fresno Chaffee Zoo Conservation Fund.
