BIG Day of Giving

Thursday, May 3, 2018
Ready. Set. Give!

Thanks to the support of all our donors, we won an additional $500 for the 10 o’clock time challenge and raised $67,452 for the zoo! On behalf of all the animals, keepers, volunteers, staff and the entire zoo team, we extend a heartfelt THANK YOU!

The Sacramento Zoo is home to 559 individual animals representing 126 different species. From the tiniest poison dart frog to the 1,200-pound giraffe, every single animal at the zoo receives the very best care to meet their specific needs.

Your gift to the Sacramento Zoo 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.

This year, thanks to a gift from a generous donor, the zoo has received a $25,000 matching gift specifically for the Big Day of Giving! Additionally, every dollar you donate will help the zoo receive a boost from a pool of incentive funds provided by other local partners. The more contributions to the zoo, the more incentive dollars we receive. This is a great opportunity to make your dollar stretch!

Here is how you can help!

Make your donation count even more

  • Help the zoo win a $500 prize challenge by donating from 10:00 am to 10:59 am on May 3rd.
  • Your dollars go further on the Big Day of Giving thanks to a generous $25,000 matching gift.
  • Use your Golden1 debit or credit card and your donation will be proportionately matched!

Spread the word – Your help makes a BIG impact

Your donation of any amount will help the Sacramento Zoo continue our important work with the amazing animals that call the zoo home.

Thank you!
