BIG Day of Giving

Thursday, May 4, 2017
24 Hours to Give Where Your Heart Is

Your gift to the Sacramento Zoological Society on the Big Day of Giving helps the Zoo to continue in its mission to inspire appreciation, respect and a connection with wildlife and nature through education, conservation and recreation. Every dollar you donate will help the Zoo to receive a boost from a pool of incentive funds provided by local partners. The more contributions to the Zoo, the more incentive dollars we will receive. This is a great opportunity to make your dollar stretch!

Big Day of Giving 2016

THANK YOU to everyone who supported the Zoo on May 3rd and 4th by donating, sharing, liking and posting!

In 2016, more than $40,000 was donated to the Sacramento Zoo and the region as a whole donated $7.1 million!

Despite technical issues on May 3rd, the Sacramento Zoo made the best of the Big Day of Giving thanks to patient and perseverant donors! The silver lining was speaking with so many donors throughout the day that wouldn’t let the difficulties stop them from supporting the Zoo!

Regardless of the technical hiccups, millions were raised for 570 local nonprofits and we’re proud to be part of this day in philanthropy. From our spokesbird Charlie and the rest of the #SacZoo team, we extend a heartfelt THANK YOU!
