We can all play a part in Zoo Miami's mission
Through the various areas of work we are committed to at Zoo Miami, there are ample opportunities for charitable gifts to be made with a positive outcome across numerous social, environmental and education areas. When you think of giving at Zoo Miami, think of the following initiatives that we are actively involved in:

General support of Zoo Miami and Zoo Miami Foundation allows us to fulfill our commitment to education, conservation, animal care and serving the community. There are many ways to give and show your support, from supporting an event or program at the zoo, providing capital support for new exhibits, to honoring a loved one. We are here to serve the community and we can do with your support! Contact us to learn more about our current needs:

Do you work for a major company or one with a Headquarters in South Florida? Whether it’s AT&T, Bank of America, PepsiCo, Starbucks or Walt Disney, many of these companies will match donations made by their employees to select non-profits. That means that you can donate $50 today and your company would give another $50 for a total gift of $100.
If you have made a gift recently or plan to in the future, ask your company about their Matching Gift program and request a Matching Gift Form. Double your money when you support Zoo Miami!
For a conservation and education 501(c) 3 organization, our greatest work is done with the support and partnership of foundations with initiatives or criteria that parallel our mission and work. By connecting Zoo Miami to small and large foundation gifts, we are able to become innovators in our industry, establish thoughtful and impactful programs and most importantly – sustain great work once it’s been accomplished.
If you are associated with a grant-making corporate or family foundation, we’d love to hear from you and share some programs and ideas that we can build together. Our work extends far beyond the zoo through community outreach, preschool through high school education, programs for the disadvantaged and of course – conservation locally and globally.
Looking at the future is all about perspective. For some, as you think of the future, you may consider your past and all that you’ve done in life before considering the legacy you can leave in the future. For others, like the tens of thousands of children that visit Zoo Miami, the future is an adventure into the unknown, one that Zoo Miami Foundation is committed to preserving when it comes to conservation.
No matter where you are on the spectrum, you may want to consider Zoo Miami and Zoo Miami Foundation as you plan your future. From Bequests, Estate Planning, Trusts and IRA’s, your support can help us to “encourage an appreciation for wildlife and help conserve it for future generations.”

Money doesn’t grow on trees. As a conservation focused organization, nobody knows that better than we do. For small, local and even large companies that want to partner with us but do not have a “money tree,” there is a lot you can gain from In-Kind Partnerships. Some ideas include:
Food and Beverage: We are constantly looking for restaurants, caterers, and food companies, as well as water, beer, wine and alcohol companies to support our fundraising events like Feast With The Beasts, Monster Masquerade and Brew at the Zoo. We’re also happy to bring one of our Donor Groups to a restaurant or location willing to host a small social event.
Marketing and Social Media: Marketing and social media are a major component of our traditional sponsorships, however, we recognize that there are a lot of creative agencies and organizations that may want to partner on awareness campaigns. We’ve got the fans and the brand, we might be happy to share.
Product: You don’t have money but you have a lot of product? Consider partnering with us to provide zoo themed events at major corporate offices and headquarters throughout South Florida where your product can be sampled while people enjoy animal encounters and discounts on zoo admission and Annual Passes.
Imagine if your child grew up without a zoo experience. The sad reality is that some children do. But now, with now your support of the Zoo For All program, this dream can become a reality. Your donation (no matter what the amount) will provide families from economically challenged neighborhoods with Zoo Miami Annual Passes. The Annual Pass (valued at $119) allows 2 adults and up to 6 children with 365 days of free access to the park including food and souvenir discounts, discounts to other cultural attractions and more. 100% of your donation goes directly to providing for Annual Passes dedicated to the Zoo For All program. The ultimate goal is for all families in these neighborhoods to have greater access to wildlife and conservation education.
