As one of the largest non-profit, privately funded zoological parks in the country, the Phoenix Zoo relies exclusively on its own earned income and the support of members, donors and the local corporate community to provide funds for operations and capital improvements of exhibits and guest experiences.

Many Zoo departments have a Wish List of items that they need to better meet the needs of our animals and guests. You can donate items directly from our Wish List or you can contact the Development department at 602.286.3800 x 7434 or to make a monetary donation for us to make the purchases. All donations are tax deductible as permitted by the law.

All gifts should be delivered to the Zoo’s main entrance during our business hours. Please let staff know you are donating Wish List items. Used items are accepted as long as they are in good working condition. See the Wish Lists below!

Amazon Wish List

Items purchased from our Amazon Wish List can be shipped directly to the Zoo. Shop using AmazonSmile and Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the price of your eligible purchases to the Phoenix Zoo when you select our charitable organization (Arizona Zoological Society)!
