Current Members

Corporate Sponsors and Donors

Through corporate sponsorship, corporate grants, and on-grounds promotion, you can position your brand as a friend of the zoo to a great many of its 3.6 million annual visitors.

Event Opportunities

Sponsoring an event allows your company to reach thousands of attendees and members in a way that traditional advertising and promotions can’t. Sponsorship benefits offer extensive recognition, which may include your logo linked with the event name; your company featured on the zoo’s website and in publicity; and recognition in paid advertising, in zoo emails, in social media posts, and on event signage—plus the opportunity to host experiential activations on-grounds to engage with event participants.

On-grounds promotions offer single- or multiple-day opportunities to sample your product and engage with visitors on a busy summer weekend or during a well-attended special event.
