Ticket Donation Requests

Thank you for considering the Greenville Zoo to participate in your fundraising efforts. We are committed to supporting our local community whenever possible. Each year we offer approximately 150 complimentary admission tickets to non-profit charitable organizations. Complimentary admission tickets are valid for regular admission and are not valid during special events.

Please be aware that each year the Greenville Zoo receives numerous requests for donations. Each request receives careful consideration, however, it is not possible to honor every request.  
Organizations that are interested in applying for complimentary admission tickets must follow all posted guidelines in order to be eligible for consideration. Organizations who do not meet posted guidelines will not be considered for a donation. In order for the Greenville Zoo to support multiple community agencies, organizations may not be eligible to receive donations in consecutive years.
