Ticket Donation Requests
Each year the Lehigh Valley zoo receives over 6,000 requests for ticket donations from various organizations in our region. As a registered 501(c)(3) charitiable organization, we understand the significance of these fundraisers and are happy to partner with members of the community to bring joy and the mission of animal conservation into the life of others.
Each donation request received will be internally reviewed by a committee. If approved, your organization will receive one family four pack of admission tickets to the Lehigh Valley Zoo. The family four pack consists of 2 adult admission tickets and 2 child admission tickets. These tickets are valid for daytime admission to the Lehigh Valley Zoo, and exclude after hours events and separately ticketed events such as Winter Light Spectacular.
As we aim to fulfill as many requests as we can, we are limited to the amount of donations we can give to charitable organizations. Due to the limited availability, organizations which share a similar mission to the Lehigh Valley Zoo will be the top candidates considered for a donation. This would favor organizations which promote wildlife conservation and education. For a better look at the Lehigh Valley Zoo’s mission, visit our Overview & Mission page. Lehigh Valley Zoo does not grant donations to any organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, or political affiliation.
Decisions on donations are made in the month prior to your event. Although the Zoo wishes to respond to each request, the frequency and quantity of donation requests during any given period may result in the difficulty to do so. If you have not received a response by the end of the month prior to your event, please consider this a request denial.
In order to be considered for a donation, please fill out the form below. We ask that you provide us with the name of the organization, the contact information of the individual representing your organization, and a mailing address for the tickets to be mailed. Ticket donation requests must be made at least 5 weeks prior to the event/date for which you are requesting tickets.
To ensure ticket delivery in time for your event, we recommend pick up at the Lehigh Valley Zoo.
