The Zoo and You

Make A Gift

Your gift can enrich both the lives of our animals here at the Zoo and their species around the world, as well as inspire conservation action and have a lasting impact on the thousands of families and school children that visit annually. There are a number of ways to make a gift to the Virginia Zoo.

Gifts of Cash

Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card. We accept VISA, MasterCard and Discover.

Gifts of Securities
Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing many important benefits for yourself.

Memorial & Tribute Gifts
Commemorate an important milestone; honor a loved one or celebration anniversaries or holidays with a gift to the Virginia Zoo.

In-Kind Donations
By giving an in-kind gift to the Virginia Zoo, you can be recognized as a Zoo donor, qualify for a charitable deduction, and provide needed supplies and materials to the Zoo's many programs.  Your assistance will contribute to the Zoo's mission while providing significant budget relief.  Items should be new or in good condition.

For more information about making a gift to the Virginia Zoo, please contact the Development Office at (757) 441-2374, ext. 242.
