We are pleased to offer donations to our community nonprofit organizations.

The Indianapolis Zoo is a private 501(c)(3) organization that provides donations to Indiana nonprofit organizations that are 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.

The most simple way to apply for a donation is to click on this link and provide the needed information when prompted.

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. Your letter needs to reach the Zoo at least three months in advance of your fundraising event.

Please mail your letter to:
Indianapolis Zoo
Attn: Community Donations
1200 West Washington Street
Indianapolis, IN 46222

Or fax your letter to:
(317) 630-5153
Attn: Community Donations

Please note that while we try to fulfill every request, submitting a request does not guarantee you will receive a donation.

Don't miss out on your next adventure.
