Giving & Investment

Charitable giving helps not only the mission of a Nonprofit such as ours, it also helps to provide businesses and individuals the means to support research and development activities that would otherwise cost too much despite their necessity for future economic growth. When you give to ZLI, you not only receive tax relief, you also fuel research into the sciences necessary for sustainable development. Our mission to support science through the arts for animal welfare and wildlife conservation is vital in itself. Giving to ZLI however is a unique opportunity to advance important work for the businesses and communities that depend upon each aspect of our mission. Many companies will therefore match or even triple your donation, find out if yours does here:

To make things easier, our Circle of Donors can also donate to The Zoological Lighting Institute through registered Donor Advisor Funds such as the Schwab Charitable, Fidelity Charitable or BNY Mellon. A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individual, families and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock and in some case, certain illiquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program. ZLI does, and you can donate directly through a DAF to our charity here:
