Thanks for your support!

The Zoo exists because of donors like you.

We need your continued support to help us sustain and grow our crucial conservation and education impact on Central Florida. Consider making a contribution to your community Zoo today to support our efforts and our mission of creating connections that inspire people to take action for wildlife.

The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens is a local community resource creating connections that inspire people to take action for wildlife. In addition to being a place where everyone can feel welcome, our dedicated staff continue to provide exemplary care to our over 350 animals, and award-winning education programs to more than 54,000 learners of all ages per year.

But we need your support.


We can only continue to sustain and grow our impact on Central Florida with the generosity of people who believe in the importance of the work we do and what we bring to our community.

People like you.


Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to our Zoo!



Don’t forget, the Zoo is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit. So, between now and the end of the year is an ideal time to make a tax-deductible donation.

The whole team at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens appreciates your support, and we look forward to seeing you at the Zoo soon!

More Ways to Contribute

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account that allows donors to make a tax-deductible donation of cash, stock, and other assets to support the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens.

A grant from your donor-advised fund now can make an immediate impact. Even in challenging times, our mission – to create connections that inspire people to take action for wildlife – continues.


There are many companies and organizations that offer employee matching programs. These programs allow employees to give to the charity of their choice with the company/organization matching a portion of that gift.

Please check with your employer to see if you have a participating program that will match your gift to the Zoo. If your employer requires the Central Florida Zoological Society Inc.’s Employer Identification Number (EIN)/Federal Tax Identification Number, please use 59-1357197.

The most flexible way to make an estate gift to the Zoo is by including our organization in your will or trust. Bequests represent a significant future revenue source for the Zoo while also offering you the flexibility to control or make changes to your charitable plans in the future.
