Becoming a Corporate Member

These memberships provide a way...

...for businesses to invest in the cultural values served by the North Carolina Zoo. In return, businesses gain recognition for supporting the Zoo's cultural achievements and receive Zoo admission passes and discounts on rental fees for Zoo picnic areas and meeting rooms. Corporate Members' employees benefit, too. They enjoy a 25 percent discount when they buy a Society membership. Corporate Membership prices are scaled to allow small, large, and even larger businesses to choose a level that is commensurate with the size of their workforce. Proceeds from the Corporate Membership program supports Zoo operations and empowers its staff to pursue the Zoo's missions in conservation, education, recreation, and research.

For more information and to become a corporate member, please contact Susan Parker (336.879.7268) or Kelly Nields (336-879-7252) at the North Carolina Zoo Society.

A Special Message for our Corporate Members - In Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Zoo has begun limiting the number of people who may visit the Zoo each day and has put new rules in place requiring guests to make reservations to visit the Zoo. At the present time, the Zoo is not prepared to begin accepting reservations from people using Corporate Member VIP Passes or Corporate Member Admission Tickets. We are currently working with the Zoo to begin accepting reservations from our Corporate Members and hope to have this system in place when the Zoo enters Phase 3 of its operations. We hope that the Zoo will enter Phase 3 sometime in July.  When it does, we will work directly with our Corporate Contacts by phone or email to secure reservations for our Corporate Members.

How Corporate Member Employees Receive Discounts on Memberships

To find out if you qualify, check the "Current Corporate Members" section at the bottom of this page to see if your employer is listed.

If your employer is a current Zoo Society Corporate Member, call your Human Resources Department to ask for the discount (or "identification") code to use when you buy your membership.

Once you have the code, come back to this spot, click here, fill out your order form and enter your discount codein the approporate box when you check out at the end of your purchase. If the code is current, the store will apply a 25 percent discount at checkout.
