Community Support

Are you looking for the Utica Zoo to support your event or fundraiser? Then you've come to the right place!

As a member of this community for over 100 years, we are well aware of how important it is to support our community members. While we cannot always accommodate every request, we are happy to consider your event or fundraiser for a donation from the Utica Zoo. Fill out the form on this page to reach out to us with your request!

In 2018 alone, we donated over $10,000 worth of items to various events and fundraisers in our community. We have supported scout troops and schools with raffles and auctions to churches and libraries with baskets and prizes. Whether you are having a benefit for a friend or family member or a black tie gala, we are happy to lend our support when possible. Some of those that we have donated to in the past include the Utica Children’s Museum, Young Scholars, the Make A Wish Foundation, Made in Utica, the American Heart Association, ARC and the Landmarks Society to name a few.

Thank you for thinking of the Utica Zoo in regards to supporting your event or fundraiser.

*Please note, requests will be processed at least 30 days prior to your event. Any request made less than 7-10 business days from the date of your event may not be received in time.*
