Major Gifts

Together, we are a force of nature.

As a nonprofit organization and Denver’s oldest cultural institution, the Zoo relies on funds raised through private philanthropic support to maintain excellence in animal care, conservation work, and education for all.

A gift of cash is the most direct and immediate way for you to support Denver Zoo. In making a cash gift, you will benefit from a charitable tax credit while taking positive action for wild animals and wild places. You can make your gift online with our Donate Now form or by sending a check or money order by mail to:

Denver Zoological Foundation

Attn: Development Department
2300 Steele Street
Denver, CO 80205
