Will Your Employer Match Your Membership?

Did you know you may be able to double or even triple your membership contribution at no cost to you? Many employers will match your current membership contribution. The matching gift does not change your membership level, but the additional gift is a huge help to the Zoo.

Contact your Human Resources Department to find out if your employer has a matching gifts program.

Employers typically have webpages where you can enter your new membership information. Feel great knowing you helped your Zoo even more! CallOUT_GoPaperless

Your Membership is Tax Deductible

Estimated Fair Market Value of Benefits: All costs may be considered a contribution to the Houston Zoo, Inc., a Section 501(c)(3) charity. The Internal Revenue Service has issued guidelines that affect the charitable contribution portion of memberships. Under those guidelines, members may claim the amount of their membership fee, less the fair market value of benefits received. For Individual members, the fair market value of benefits received is not substantial. The estimated fair market value of benefits received for other categories are: Family $12.50; Family Plus $25; Grandparent $25; Family Premium $58; Sustaining $58; Conservator $58.


Membership Requests from Charitable Organizations

The Houston Zoo is pleased to consider requests for Houston Zoo memberships in support of silent auctions and other fundraising events for licensed nonprofit organizations in the Greater Houston Area.
