Business Partner Program

The Red River Zoological Society's Business Partner Program is your unique opportunity to support a valued piece of your community and provide your employees and clients with amazing perks.

Further, the Red River Zoo is a premier cultural institution and event marketing property that offers corporate partners a unique means to deliver their message to our family audience of over 80,000 visitors annually.

Our corporate sponsors receive heightened image, expanded brand awareness and the potential for increased sales volume - while demonstrating social & environmental responsibility and community involvement - through a wide range of cause-related marketing programs and sponsorship activation methods.

Sponsorships and promotions with the Red River Zoo offer guaranteed impressions to a targeted, diverse family market and allow partners to get their brand and product in front of a young and active audience. As a sponsor, you will be able to connect with families and children in a more meaningful manner than traditional advertising allows.

Membership includes:

  • Event Sponsorships
  • Buy the Zoo for a Day allowing exclusive consumer promotions
  • Naming opportunities
  • Education and outreach program funding
  • Invitations to special Zoo events
  • Press events and publicity activities
  • In-kind donation of materials and services

Annual events include several popular events like Boo at the Zoo, Jaws Paws, Lunch with Santa Claus, Party for the Planet and ZOOlebration which provide high visibility for corporate sponsors.

Day Passes & Zoo It Forward

Red River Zoo day passes are a wonderful way to say thank you to employees or special clients. Each quarter, you will receive day passes. Each pass provides one adult or child admission to the zoo and is good for up to a year. You may choose to have all day passes delivered to your business or elect to participate in the Zoo it Forward program. This program allows you to donate a portion or all of your quarterly passes to the charity of your choice. The zoo will make the donation on your behalf, including a letter designating your business as the donor. It's an easy way to make an impact on the community; imagine your business sending an entire class to the zoo!
