Corporate and Foundation Partners

Whether your goal is to promote your company, support a valuable community resource, improve the lives of your employees or invest in Rochester, we can develop a Corporate Membership program that addresses your company’s needs.

We truly value all of our corporate members and their many gifts. This essential support helps the Zoo continue to grow and evolve as a leading community attraction.

We’d love to talk about how the Zoo Society and your business can form a mutually beneficial partnership. After you’ve reviewed the options below, please contact us with questions or to discuss how the Zoo Society and your business can form a mutually beneficial partnership.

Event Sponsorship

Corporations that wish to have their name associated with a specific event may choose to sponsor one of the many fundraising events held at the Zoo:

Event sponsorship levels vary greatly with benefits ranging from being recognized on event-specific literature to naming rights for the event.

Most events at the Zoo are publicized through local TV, radio and newspaper outlets, in addition to promotion through the Zoo.

Program Sponsorship

Program sponsorship opportunities at the Zoo include education, conservation and outreach programs. These are excellent marketing opportunities for your business:

Exhibit Sponsorship

Corporations are also given the opportunity to sponsor a specific animal exhibit at the Zoo.

Annual exhibit sponsorships start at $2,500 and include the benefit of a customized sign prominently displayed at the exhibit.

Sponsorship levels are based on the popularity of the animal as well as the location of the exhibit.

Annual Corporate Membership

Starting at $1,000, corporations make donations to the Zoo’s general operating fund. In exchange, corporations receive a wide variety of benefits including recognition on the Zoo’s Corporate Board and Web site, discounts for employees, VIP tours and a subscription to ZooNooz, our quarterly newsletter with a circulation of nearly 20,000 (benefits dependent upon level of membership).
