Support the National Zoo
Give Online: It's Easy, Secure, and Very Much Appreciated
As one of the few free zoos in the country, the National Zoo relies on the generosity of the community, our members, and our millions of annual visitors (including virtual visitors like you) to support our conservation and education efforts and to revitalize the Zoo.
When you support the National Zoo, you help us provide the highest quality animal care; advance scientific excellence in conserving wildlife; teach and inspire people to engage in conservation of wildlife, water, and habitats; and practice conservation leadership in all we do. Your donation to FONZ will be well spent. Eighty-five percent of our budget directly supports Zoo renewal, wildlife education, and conservation programs.
Your donation makes a difference!
If you prefer to donate by check (made out to "FONZ"), you can mail your donation to:
