Join our Holiday Matching Gift Challenge

In the spirit of the holiday season, our Board of Directors has personally committed to match every donation made by 11:59 p.m. on December 31, up to $50,000! This means your gift will be DOUBLED – and help us raise a total of $100,000 for your Zoos.

Give Now

Your matched gift will be put to use right away to help raise zoo babies like Gimli, our newest red panda cub, Johari, the latest addition to the De Brazza’s monkey troop, and Pineapple, Stone Zoo’s prehensile-tailed porcupette! But we need your help today to reach this ambitious goal. Each dollar you give will fund twice as much food, supplies, training, and enrichment for these little ones:

  • Your gift of $25 becomes $50
  • Your gift of $50 becomes $100
  • Your gift of $250 becomes $500
  • Your gift of $500 becomes $1,000

Did you know the Charitable IRA Distribution is no longer a temporary measure? Individuals 70 1/2 years or older can make tax-free distributions from their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) to qualified charities. Federal law allows a direct transfer of up to $100,000 from your IRA without recognizing those funds as income for federal tax purposes.

Babies today, wildlife ambassadors tomorrow

These tiny creatures are small but mighty! As ambassadors, each of these animals plays a vital role in the survival of its species. For every visitor within our gates – campers, ZooTeens, and families of all ages – these babies become ambassadors of conservation, compassion, and commitment. Through face-to-face connections, starting on day one, they can inspire a lifetime of commitment to the natural world.
