In About the Zoo

Request a Community Donation

The Virginia Zoo provides donations to nonprofit organizations sponsoring fundraising activities to benefit families, children or their education. The donation consists of tickets to the Zoo. We do not offer donations for appreciation awards, incentives or prizes.

To apply, please submit a one-page letter on your agency’s letterhead via US Mail describing the fundraising event, the potential benefit to the community and the date of the event. Your letter needs to reach the Zoo at least two months in advance of your fundraising event.

Please note that due to the overwhelming amount of requests for donations, we are only able to grant a limited amount of requests per month. Donations are granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please mail your letter to:
Virginia Zoo
Attn: Community Donations
3500 Granby Street
Norfolk, VA 23504
