If you are seeking a donation from the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens, please follow the procedures below.

The Central Florida Zoo takes pride in our support of nonprofit organizations and schools. The organization requesting the donation will be contacted by email, regardless of whether or not the request is approved. Donations are not automatically renewed or assumed. Each submission is evaluated on a first time basis and will not be approved based upon a prior year's participation.

The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens does not provide charitable donations to:
• Groups engaged in highly controversial issues
• Individuals or Families
• Labor or political organizations
• Organizations outside the state of Florida
• Organizations that support activities or practices that do not align with our policies
• Requests made with less than proper notification
• Third party fundraising organizations

Donations are limited to one (1) request per organization within a 12-month period.

If the criteria outlined are met, please submit your request in advance of 60 days prior to the event. All requests will be reviewed within one month.

Please note that submitting a request does not guarantee the request will be approved. If your request is selected to be fulfilled, you will receive a donation by mail prior to your event date. Due to the large volume of requests received, not all requests can be supported; denial of a request does not imply that the organization's mission is not important or valid.

We are not able to respond to phone requests, follow-up calls, mailed requests or emails. Thank you and best of luck with your fundraising endeavors!
