Support Your Zoo

Thank you for your interest in supporting your NEW Zoo & Adventure Park!  The NEW Zoo is one of only seven Association of Zoo & Aquarium accredited zoos that are self-funded in the entire country!  This means that the zoo does not receive any tax support for daily operating costs. The Zoo relies on visitors, members, and generous donors, in addition to support for the N.E.W. Zoological Society to help keep our doors open. We are grateful to our community’s support!

Financial Donations

Capital Campaigns & Projects

Monetary donations can be made to the N.E.W. Zoological Society, Inc. to support a variety of programs and ongoing fund-raising efforts. These donations are fully tax-deductible and benefit capital campaigns and new projects (such as new exhibits). Consider giving at work, donating stock, establishing a life income gift, or even designating the Zoological Society as a beneficiary of your estate. Learn more here.

Wish List

Shop online from the comfort of your home – and Amazon will ship your donations directly to the Zoological Society’s door! The Society can also accept donations of new or gently used items that will be used to care for and enhance the quality of life of the animal ambassadors at the NEW Zoo, expand the potential of educational programming, and improve or update Volunteer and Education Resource Centers. Download the printable Wish List here to learn what is currently needed to help improve the facility.
