The Zoo and You

Leadership Society

The Leadership Society is the Zoo’s way of thanking its most generous supporters and bringing members even closer to the life of the Zoo.  As a Leadership Society member, you support our daily commitment to animal care, enrichment programming, wildlife conservation, education, and research initiatives across our community and beyond.


Leadership Society donors are the cornerstone of this institution, whose goal is to ensure that there will always be a Virginia Zoo for your children and the community. While the material benefits of the Virginia Zoo Leadership Society are small but important tokens of our appreciation: recognition in our publications, an annual membership for your family, a subscription to our newsletter, the intangible benefits are another story.


Your gift of $1,000 or $2,500 makes a profound impact on the Zoo's day-to-day activities and, ultimately, its future. For more information on the Leadership Society, please call us at (757) 441-2374, ext. 222.
