Through amazing conservation projects and inspirational education programs, the Zoo is able to achieve its mission and, more importantly, change the way visitors view the world around them. The Indianapolis Zoo is very proud of its ongoing conservation activities and educational programs. These include programs on grounds to the general Zoo visitor as well as K-12 programs that meet Indiana math and science standards (STEM). The Zoo encourages companies to get involved by underwriting these important educational offerings or by providing credible cause-related sponsorships.
The Indianapolis Zoo hosts a variety of special events, either on grounds to provide an enhanced visitor experience for regular Zoo guests, or as special fundraising events for targeted audiences. Corporate sponsorship opportunities include the option of naming rights and special benefits like complimentary facility rentals, Zoo tickets, membership discounts, and even behind-the-scenes tours for employee appreciation, client entertainment, and customer cultivation. The Indianapolis Zoo strives to create integrated, multi-departmental packages that help achieve goals throughout our sponsors’ corporations. Some of the many special event sponsorships include Zoobilation, Christmas at the Zoo, Animals and All That Jazz, Elegant Vintage International Wine Auction, the Indianapolis Prize Gala, and ZooBoo.
With certain parameters, companies can rent the entire Zoo and White River Gardens for the evening. The White River Gardens can also be rented during public hours. Special animal demonstrations and rides as well as a complimentary dolphin demonstration are available. The Zoo or Gardens provide a great venue for meetings, company picnics, or formal affairs, and will help make your event one to remember. All expenditures at the Indianapolis Zoo support our animal conservation mission.
