Make a Donation – $25


Every dollar you donate to Friends of the Charles Paddock Zoo is used to enhance the quality of life for our animal collection, develop and maintain our important educational programs and help provide the on-going maintenance and improvements to our zoo grounds.

The animals depend on us to maintain the levels of health and safety standard they need.  These high standards allow the Charles Paddock Zoo to continue our relationship with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.  The Charles Paddock Zoo is one of only 220 zoos in the United States to be accredited by the AZA.

There are many ways to support our mission of conservation, education and recreation.  With your help the Charles Paddock Zoo will continue to flourish and provide the valuable cultural asset the Zoo is to our community.

All donations, sponsorships & gifts are 100% tax deductible.  Friends of the Charles Paddock Zoo is a registered 501(c) 3 organization.  Federal Tax ID #45-5250037
