Corporate Support

We invite local businesses to support our Zoos by becoming Corporate Partners. Your employees, customers and guests will have the opportunity to explore two unique spaces that connect visitors with hundreds of species of animals and create unforgettable experiences.


Why should your company support Zoo New England?

Exposure:

  • Zoo New England hosts more than 600,000 visitors annually, including over 15,000 member families. Demographic data indicates that visitors come from all over Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
  • Our educational programs reach more than 100,000 people annually and employ and train over 1,000 local teens through our nationally-recognized ZooTeen program.

Zoo New England looks to the corporate community for sponsorships to continue these time-honored traditions. Our mission is universal, and there are numerous opportunities to match companies whose interests and/or product base relates to the Zoos’ focus on education, recreation, children, family, and conservation.

Sponsorships

Zoo New England offers many ways to show your company’s support of Franklin Park and Stone Zoos, including Exhibit and Event Sponsorships.

Our Zoos attract thousands of individuals from across the region through annual fundraising events, including a formal gala “Zootopia,” and our annual 5K “Run Wild” races. During the holiday season, the Zoos open their doors to 70,000+ constituents to enjoy “Boo at the Zoo," “Zoo Howl” and “ZooLights”. View our full event listing.

Zoo New England offers a comprehensive sponsorship program tailored to your company’s needs and marketing objectives.

Partnerships

More than just a membership, corporate partnerships allow you to reward your employees and customers with a variety of benefits. Partnership also gives your business exposure to a broad audience and provides visible support to two beloved civic institutions. Benefits included in a corporate partnership:

  • Tickets: employees, customers or philanthropic programs receive complimentary single day passes for entry to either Zoo. Tickets can also be donated – with attribution – to our Community Pass Program, which provides free entry to the Zoo for those who can’t afford it.
  • Passes: partnership levels come with a number of family passes that can be used an unlimited number of times, all year round at both Zoos.
  • Discounted site rental: from coordinating catering to site coordination, we make planning your event a breeze. In addition, your constituents will have awareness of your philanthropic contribution to the community.
  • Employee discounts on memberships: you can offer employees a discount when they buy a family pass to return over and over again.
