"You're their ticket to a world of wonder"


Community Partnership Program

Of all Louisville's many wonderful attractions, nothing seems to capture the hearts and minds of children as much as the Louisville Zoo.  

Every day we see their small faces filled with anticipation as they go racing down the path to the petting zoo, Gorilla Forest or any of our many attractions.  

Unfortunately, this scene doesn't play out for thousands of children in our community because their families are faced with difficult financial and social situations.  You can help put smiles on these children's faces with the Zoo Kids, Inc. corporate program.

Your generous donation will help send at-risk or disadvantaged children on the types of wild hands-on and educational adventures uniquely provided by the Louisville Zoo.

Education is a primary focus for the Louisville Zoo, and with help from you and others in our corporate community, we can teach the area's children to love and care for the natural resources of our city and planet.

In addition to inspiring young minds, your partnership offers opportunities for special recognition of your company, VIP Zoo Tours, free admission to Zoo special events and more.
