Leadership Society
Members Gone Wild!

The Leadership Society is the Zoo’s way of thanking its most generous annual supporters and bringing donors even closer to the life of the Zoo.

As a Leadership Society donor, your gift supports the Virginia Zoo’s annual fund, the Zoo Fund, and helps fill the gap between our earned revenue and the costs of providing exceptional mission based programming.

Your generosity creates experiences that bond families, inspire students, and spark a lifelong appreciation for the animals we all love. By making an annual gift of $1,000 or more, you make a profound impact on the Zoo’s day-to-day activities and, ultimately, its future.

Supporting the Leadership Society includes all of these benefits:

  • Invitations to exclusive Leadership Society events throughout the year
  • Recognition on the Virginia Zoo’s website and in the membership newsletter, the Zoo Review
  • One Household Deluxe Membership:*
    • Two adults living in the same household and members’ children or grandchildren (18 years and younger)
    • Three guests per visit; member must accompany guests
  • One FREE family 4-pack of tickets and train tokens to gift to another family*
  • 10 guest passes for friends and family*
  • Train punch card good for 24 rides*

* Tangible benefits may be declined to allow for a fully tax-deductible contribution. Benefits and admission tickets may also be waived or donated as certificates for charity auction/school events at the donor’s request.

For more information, call 757.441.2374 (220) or email the Development Director, Angela Benard.

All gifts are directed to the Zoo Fund unless otherside designated. If you wish to direct your gift to a specific fund, please indicate in the special notes section.
