Donation Requests

If your nonprofit organization is holding a fundraiser, the Santa Barbara Zoo may be able to help by donating two guest passes to be auctioned or raffled off. Your organization and fundraiser must meet the following criteria to be considered for a donation:


  • Organization is located in the state of California
  • Organization is a 501(c3) with a Federal nonprofit I.D. number
  • Zoo passes will be used in a fundraising capacity (i.e. auctioned or raffled)
  • You have not already received a donation from the Santa Barbara Zoo this year

    If you meet all of these guidelines, you may download our Guest Pass Request Form. Please print the application and mail with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

    Santa Barbara Zoo
    Attn: Guest Pass Requests
    500 Niños Drive
    Santa Barbara, CA 93103

    Please be advised that applications or letters of inquiry which do not meet all of the above guidelines will receive no response.

    Additional information:

    Santa Barbara Zoo guest passes will expire one year from the date of your event; no extensions can be granted. The passes have no cash value and may only be used for general admission at the Santa Barbara Zoo.

    Due to the great number of requests the Zoo receives, we can only give out passes to each nonprofit organization once per year.

    In exchange for guest passes, the Zoo requests reciprocation in the form of advertising, promotion, or other publicity. You will be asked to describe your plans for reciprocity on the Guest Pass Request Form.
