As an advocate for wildlife and wild places, Alexandria Zoo not only strives to make an impact for the animals in our care and around the globe, but to also inspire others to make a difference for wildlife.

Many projects, education programs, conservation efforts and new exhibits depend on additional support from private sources. Donations of products, money or in-kind services by businesses and corporations are welcomed.

Your tax-deductible gift helps us make a world of difference for animals here – and everywhere.

Alexandria Zoo accepts contributions through Friends of the Alexandria Zoo (FOTAZ). Formed in 1971, FOTAZ's purpose is to help support Alexandria Zoological Park, its animals, conservation efforts, and education programs, as well as aid in its continued development.
