Corporate Memberships/Kids for Conservation

​​​​​​Invest in the Future

The Indianapolis Zoo is a valuable community asset and an important anchor for downtown tourism. In fact, the Zoo attracts more than a million visitors each year! By supporting the Indianapolis Zoo and its animal conservation mission, your corporation helps to make this a better community in which to live and work. And the citizens of our city do take notice!

                 

Corporate Member Benefits 

Corporate support helps to open fascinating new exhibits, like Flights of Fancy: A Brilliance of Birds, presented by Citizens Energy Group, and Cheetah: Race for Survival in partnership with the Tony Stewart Foundation. Exhibits like these engage our visitors and allow us to educate them about our mission — animal conservation. Your support will not only help advance the Zoo's mission, it can also send school children to the Zoo for a field trip!

•   Complimentary admission tickets to the Zoo & Gardens (quantity varies with gift amount);

•   Membership discounts for all employees;

•   Listing in Annual Report;

Send Children to the Zoo

Corporate Field Trip Challenge

Corporate support provides opportunities for more than 150,000 adults and children each year to either travel to the Indianapolis Zoo on a field trip or to participate in Zoo-sponsored programs and classes to learn more about the natural world and the Indianapolis Zoo's animal conservation mission. 

The schools in our community continue to face shrinking budgets and often the first items to be cut from the budget are field trips. For many students in the Indianapolis Public School system, coming to the Zoo on a field trip is the only opportunity they have to visit the Zoo. Education is a primary focus for the Zoo, and with the help of the Indianapolis corporate community, we can teach our children to love and care for the natural resources of our city and planet. 

Help us create new stewards for the Earth and its inhabitants. Provide your support and send children to the Zoo!
