Donating to the Irvine Park Zoo

The Friends of the Irvine Park Zoo is a small group of volunteers that formed in the 90’s to raise money for new habitats for the animals that reside there. Because we can't do it alone, the Irvine Park Zoo needs charitable contributions to help aid in its development and success.

Donations are a great way to get involved and if you'd like to donate to the Irvine Park Zoo you can do so here. However, donations are not the only you can contribute. The Irvine Park hosts many events and activities in which you can participate. You can also "Buy a Brick" which is added to the park's development. The brick can be customized to include some personalized information, giving you the opportunity to be a part of the historic Irvine Park Zoo. Fill out or download our brick order form to purchase your piece of Irvine Park Zoo history. Remember that all donations to Friends of the Irvine Park Zoo, Inc. are tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.

Making A Donation

Using our new donation system is easy, fast, and secure. We've partnered with Network For Good, an organization that specializes in online donations. Now you can use a debit card, credit card, or PayPal account to donate right from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You have the option to do a one time donation or set up a recurring donation and you choose the amount. Go to our donations page to get started. »

Irvine Park Capital Campaign

Since 1906, the natural beauty and amenities of Irvine Park’s 300-plus acres have created lasting memories for generations. The greatest gift of the park – and truly its heart – is its much-loved zoo. It brings together everyone who enters through the park’s gates.

Today, because of a deep affection for the Irvine Park Zoo, civic and community leaders are spearheading efforts to raise enough money to transform it into a first class zoo. At the heart of this effort is a $3.25 million capital campaign to expand and renovate this popular facility.

William Irvine left behind a legacy of generosity when he initially donated land for the park. Now it is time for everyone who has ever enjoyed the park and zoo’s amenities to lend a hand. Your pledge will help revitalize, preserve and expand Irvine Park and Zoo for the future!
