Major donations help the Taronga Foundation care for the animals in our Zoos and achieve excellence in wildlife conservation, scientific research, education and breeding programs for endangered wildlife in Australia and overseas.
There are a number of ways to give – from annual donations through our regular giving program, to bequests and major capital gifts. All gifts over $2 are fully tax-deductible.
Our major donors are an integral part of the life of the Zoos. Taronga therefore tailors its recognition programs to meet their individual needs. Recognition may include invitations to events and celebrations, in-ground acknowledgement at the Partners in Conservation Gallery, in our Annual Report and on this website. Donors also have the opportunity for acknowledgement at an exhibit or on one of the heritage stone benches throughout the Zoo. Naturally the Taronga Foundation respects the privacy of donors who wish to remain anonymous.
The NSW State Government provides $3 for every $1 we raise towards Master Plan redevelopment projects, making your gift even more valuable.
