Donate $

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and relies in part on donations to operate. Please click the button below to make a fast, secure credit card donation to the Zoo. Your contribution is also fully tax-deductible. 



It’s your chance to make twice the difference for wildlife.  Join the Zoo Tuesday, December 1st for #GivingZooDay.  It’s an important chance to help support the Zoo on Giving Tuesday.  Make any gift of $25 of more on #GivingZooDay and your gift will be doubled (up to $10,000!) thanks to the generosity of two Maryland Zoo donors.  Plus, you’ll be entered to win special thank you gifts including Zoo event tickets and a behind-the-scenes tour!  Be sure to take advantage of this special one day opportunity to double your support.  Click here to learn more.
