Requesting a Donation From the Red River Zoo

The Red River Zoo supports the fundraising efforts of community members and local non-profits through our Day Pass Donation program. Due to the large volume of requests we are unable to accommodate all requests.

Please note: All donation requests must be made via our online form and mailed at least 30 days in advance of your event for consideration. If your organization misses this deadline, you may submit your request for the next year.

Preference is given to local organizations, particularly those that have conservation-focused missions or activities which promote successful outcomes for youth or families, and help build strong communities.

Follow up inquiries may be directed to Alison Chesser at [email protected]



Approved donations can be picked up at the Red River Zoo admissions desk during regular Zoo hours.

Send the completed form, along with formal request letter or event poster to:
Red River Zoo
Attn: Alison Chesser, Donation Request
4255 23rd Ave South
Fargo, ND 58104

Requests sent through the phone will not be considered.
