Benefits to the Community

Companies for Kids supports programs to educate both children and adults on Zoo grounds and in schools about wildlife, science and conservation of the Earth’s natural resources.

Overview

Companies for Kids provides free admission passes to The Toledo Zoo through the Disadvantaged Children’s Fund. This enables underprivileged, at-risk and disabled youth, who might not otherwise have the opportunity to visit The Toledo Zoo. As a way of saying thanks to the Companies for Kids members for their generous support, the passes are distributed in the name of the company that donated them and prominently display the company name on each pass.

Levels of Support and Benefits

All Companies for Kids members receive:

  • Public acknowledgement in a local newspaper.
     
  • Recognition on the Companies for Kids donor board located in the entry plaza of the Zoo, which is viewed by nearly 1 million visitors annually.
     
  • Recognition in the Zoo’s quarterly magazine, Safari!, distributed to over 50,000 member households and businesses.
     
  • A number of free admission passes to the Zoo. Members may designate all of the passes for the Disadvantaged Children’s Fund or retain half for the use of their employees or clients.
