Join our Holiday Matching Gift Challenge

In the cheerful spirit of the holiday season on this difficult year, members of our Board of Directors have personally committed to match every donation made by 11:59 p.m. on December 31, up to $100,000! This means your gift will be DOUBLED – and help us raise a total of $100,000 for your Zoos. Your matched gift will be put to use right away to support our core programs: animal care, education, and conservation.

At Zoo New England, care is at the heart of everything we do. We have been fortunate to have multiple important births to celebrate this fall. Franklin Park Zoo has seen a baby boom, with our Baird’s tapir, pygmy hippo, and gorilla moms all welcoming little ones. As these little ones grow, they educate thousands of families, school children, campers, and friends like you about the importance of wildlife conservation and our efforts to save species.

We need your help today to reach this ambitious goal. Each dollar you give will go twice as far to support all of our animals, including our newest additions, and efforts to conserve their species.

  • $25 becomes $50 for healthy diets
  • $50 becomes $100 for environmental enrichment
  • $250 becomes $500 for virtual educational programming
  • $500 becomes $1,000 for preventative care and veterinary exams

CARES Act 2020
Did you know the CARES Act expanded charitable giving incentives, allowing for a new one-time deduction of up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 per married couple)? Also new, individuals can deduct cash contributions up to 100% of their 2020 adjusted gross income on itemized returns. This only applies to gifts made in 2020! Please consult your financial adviser or visit to understand what this legislation means for you.
