Through event sponsorship, area corporations reach thousands of Washington metro-area families to generate top-of-mind awareness, initiate product trial, and build sales through product/incentive offers. At the same time, sponsor contributions support the Zoo’s important wildlife conservation, research, and public education programs.

Sponsor Benefits

A range of sponsor benefits are available at each event, including logo ID on in-park banners, programs, invitations, and print advertising, recognition in FONZ publications sent to a member base of 40,000 families, booth space, product sampling/coupon distribution opportunities, and more.
