Be a Corporate Member
These memberships provide a way...
...for businesses to invest in the cultural values served by the North Carolina Zoo. In return for their investments, businesses gain visibility and recognition for supporting the Zoo's cultural resources and receive Zoo admission passes and discounts on rental prices for Zoo picnic areas and meeting rooms. Corporate Members' employees benefit, too, by receiving a 25 percent discount on the price of a Zoo Society membership.
We scale our Corporate Membership prices to allow small, large, and even larger businesses to match their partnership levels with the size of their workforce.
Proceeds from Zoo Society's Corporate Memberships help underwrite Zoo operations and make it possible for the Zoo to pursue its missions in conservation, education, recreation and research.
For more information, and to become a corporate member, please contact Susan Parker at the NC Zoo Society (336.879.7268).
Are You Employed by One of Our Corporate Partners?
If you are employed by a business that supports the Zoo Society through a Corporate Membership, you are eligible to purchase a Zoo Society membership at a special price. To learn how, please contact your employer's Human Resources department to request the identification code you must use to receive this special price. Click here for a list of our Corporate Partners.
Once you have the code that identifies your employer as a current Corporate Partner, please visit this page. Please be sure to enter the code in the appropriate field at checkout; unfortunately we will not honor purchases made without a current code.
