Event Sponsorship

Align Your Company With One of Chicago's Most Recognized Brands

Sponsoring a Lincoln Park Zoo event enables you to reach the zoo’s 3.5 million annual visitors and more than 18,000 dedicated members in a way that traditional advertising or promotion does not. Sponsorship benefits may include inclusion in print, television and radio advertisements; recognition on the zoo’s website and donor newsletter; on-site signage and street banners; entertaining opportunities for your clients or employees; and free or discounted event tickets.
