A Matter of Survival.

Donations are our lifeline. As one of only a handful of zoos in the United States that does not receive any local or regional tax support to operate, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo relies solely on donations, membership dues, admissions and grants for funding.  Your support is critical to our future.

All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. Donations and financial support are particularly important to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo as we are a non-profit, public trust of the citizens of Colorado Springs, Colorado USA. Donations come in many forms, and every little bit counts.

For information about our performance and accountability, visit the Guide to Giving page.
