Zoo Ticket Requests for Fundraisers/Events
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization and is pleased to support many community organizations and schools each year by donating admission tickets for fundraising purposes. Given the large number of requests, ticket donations are limited and must meet specific criteria. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo relies on its admission revenue to support its own operation and conservation work.
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo cannot consider requests for Zoo memberships, behind the scenes experiences or special events. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo will process requests for day admission passes only.
Donation requests will be reviewed on or around the 15th of the month two months prior to the event date (for example, if your event is on June 20, your request will be reviewed in mid-April). The organization requesting the donation will be contacted by email, regardless of whether or not the request is approved, within a week of the review date. Non-profit organizations and schools will be considered for a donation of admission passes if the following Donation Guidelines are met.
Please review the Donation Guidelines if you have questions as to whether or not your organization is eligible.
To make your donation request, please use our online form. Please note requests by phone, mail or fax will not be considered.
