2016 Spring Campaign: Building an Even Better Houston Zoo

Help build an even better Houston Zoo with your gift to the Zoo Fund. Every dollar of your gift supports our animal care, education, and wildlife conservation programs. As a non-profit organization undergoing an amazing transformation, the Houston Zoo counts on contributions from donors like you.

Give by May 31 to Double Your Impact

For the first time during this annual spring campaign, Bank of America will match every gift, up to a total of $25,000, until May 31. That means a tax-deductible gift of $100 is worth $200!


Your Gift Will…

CARE for more than 6,000 priceless animal ambassadors

From routine exams and x-rays to scrumptious meals and treats, you help care for our animal family. This year, we’ll soon finish a complete renovation and expansion of our animal hospital. We celebrated the birth of a beautiful baby gerenuk antelope named January. And we recently welcomed Berani, a Malayan tiger. Your gift delivers the best care available!

$500 could buy 1,300 pounds of carrots for our animals, including gerenuks January and mom Josie

SAVE species locally and around the globe

Wildlife conservation is at the heart of all that we do. Whether it’s a sea turtle in Galveston caught on a fishing line or a gorilla in Africa facing habitat loss, the Houston Zoo and our partners strive to protect species and their habitats. Your generosity gives hope for animals like this endangered Attwater’s prairie chick, a species native to Texas.

$250 could purchase a brooder to keep Attwater’s prairie chicks warm this breeding season

INSPIRE a new generation of wildlife champions

As a “Zoo For All,” we believe every child should have the opportunity to connect with wildlife. Your support keeps the Houston Zoo’s education programs like field trips and Camp Zoofari open to kids across our community. Help them explore the wonders of wildlife!

$100 could help send a kid to summer Camp Zoofari on a scholarship

Maximizing Your Support

Does your company have a matching gift program? Corporate matching gifts are a great way to maximize personal contributions to the Zoo and multiply the impact of your gift. By taking advantage of your company’s matching gift benefits, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your contribution. The proceeds from the match will be designated for the same program as your original gift. Contact your Human Resources Department to learn if your employer has a matching gift program.

Completed matching gift forms (provided by your employer) can be sent to:
