Community Donation Program

We are pleased to offer donations to community nonprofit organizations.

The Indianapolis Zoo is a private 501(c)(3) organization that provides donations to Indiana nonprofit organizations sponsoring fundraising activities to benefit their members or target audience. We do not offer donations for appreciation awards, door prizes, monetary donations, sponsorships or post-prom gifts. Priority is given to organizations that support Indiana families and animal conservation. Organizations may receive one donation per the calendar year.

Requests must be received 3 months in advance of your fundraising event. While we try to fulfill every request, submitting a request does not guarantee you will receive a donation.

To apply online, please fill out our donation request form.

To apply by mail, please submit a one-page letter on your organization’s letterhead describing the fundraising event, the potential benefit to the community, the date of the event, how tickets will be distributed (e.g., raffle or silent auction) and the address to where the donation should be mailed.

Mail your letter to:
