Donation Request

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!

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. 

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

*Please note that due to the number of requests we receive, donations are processed the month before the event in question (i.e. donation requests for an event in May will be processed at the beginning of April). Any request made less than 7-10 business days from the date of your event may not be received in time.
