Partnership Opportunities With FONZ and the National Zoo

Friends of the National Zoo hosts several major events throughout the year to draw the community to the Zoo and raise funds for the Zoo’s education and conservation programs.

Through event sponsorship, area corporations reach thousands of Washington metro-area families to generate top-of-mind awareness, initiate product trial, and build sales through product/incentive offers. At the same time, sponsor contributions support the Zoo's important wildlife conservation, research, and public education programs.

Sponsor Benefits

A range of sponsor benefits are available at each event, including logo ID on in-park banners, programs, invitations, and print advertising, recognition in FONZ publications sent to a member base of 40,000 families, booth space, product sampling/coupon distribution opportunities, and more.
