Lehigh Valley Zoo depends upon the support of our community. When you make a gift to the Zoo, you help support one of the most vibrant wildlife conservation education institutions in the region. The Zoo is the one place where children are most likely to enjoy their first positive experience with nature. Thank you for your interest in supporting Lehigh Valley Zoo!
When you make a gift to Lehigh Valley Zoo, you are making a significant contribution to the community.

Monthly Giving Program
You can help our animals eat their veggies! Did you know that approximately $1,200 per day is directly related to Lehigh Valley Zoo’s animal care for the Zoo’s animal collection? By joining Lehigh Valley Zoo’s Monthly Giving Program you can help offset these costs by designating a set donation to be deducted from your credit card. You would be surprised how a small amount every month can add up in a big way for Lehigh Valley Zoo! The Monthly Giving Program is one of the “greenest” way to donate to the Zoo! Please contact our Development Department at 610-799-4171.
Pick your favorite animal from the list – adopt it yourself, or give the gift of caring to someone special. Once you become a wild parent through symbolic adoption, a Zoo visit becomes even more fun!
Lehigh Valley Zoo kindly accepts donations of goods or services to help offset our annual operating budget. Please call 610-799-4171 for details.

Zoo License Plate
If you live in Pennsylvania, you can get one of the popular “Support Your Zoo” or “Conserve Wild Resources” license plates and help save endangered wildlife!
The Pennsylvania Zoological Council Fund registration plate was first issued in April 1996. Proceeds from this registration plate benefit the Pennsylvania Zoological Council’s six member zoos: the Philadelphia Zoo, the Pittsburgh Zoo, the Erie Zoo, the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, the National Aviary in Pittsburgh and the Lehigh Valley Zoo.
The Wild Resource Conservation Fund registration plate became available in February 1999. This is the second Wild Resources Conservation Fund Plate and replaces the Saw-Whet Owl Plate which has been retired. Proceeds from this plate support the management of the Commonwealth’s unique flora and fauna.
