North Alabama Zoological Society

A Matter of Survival. 

Donations are our lifeline. All donations are tax deductible as we are a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  Donations come in many forms, and every little bit counts.  The above donation button is available as convenient way for you to give today. Here are a few other ways to give. Please contact us directly for more information.  Your support is critical to our future.

Memorials and Tribute Giving

Memorials and tributes will be located in places of honor in the forthcoming zoo.

  • Honor family or cherished friends.

  • Remember a loved one. Leave a legacy.

  • Recognize your business, class or favorite organization

Employer Donations

Many employers provide a social mission benefit.  If they have a matching program, they will match the charitable contributions of their employees. In many cases, you can double your donation to North Alabama Zoological Society if your employer has such a program. Other companies will donate on your behalf.  Too often this benefit goes unused each year.  Contact your company’s human resources department or your supervisor to take advantage of this opportunity.


Planned Giving

No matter how you plan, making a lasting donation to bringing forth a community treasure committed to conservation, the future of wildlife and the education of children and families would be greatly appreciated. The first step is talking with your estate attorney. They will help you decide on the type of gift that is most beneficial to you now and into the future. In order to include the Zoo in your will or estate plan. You’ll need our legal name, and tax ID number, which can be found below.
