It's cool to be a member of the Houston Zoo. Members receive free admission to the Houston Zoo and many other benefits. Stay all day or just an hour - you can go home early, perfectly comfortable knowing you can come back anytime, free, as a member.
Gift memberships are defined as a membership for someone in another household.
For questions about gift memberships, you may email our Houston Zoo Membership Staff.
Will Your Employer Match Your Membership Donation?
Did you know you may be able to double or even triple your membership contribution at no cost to you? And it is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3! Many employers will match your current membership contribution. The matching gift does not change your membership level but the additional gift is a huge help to the Zoo.
Contact your Human Resources Department directly in order to find out if your employer has a matching gifts program.
- Obtain the form from your HR department.
- Fill out the form and send it to the Zoo along with your gift.
- Feel great knowing you helped you Zoo even more!
Your membership payment is Tax Deductible!
If you have the Individual, Family, Family Plus, Grandparent or Supporting level membership, the fair market value of your benefits is not substantial and therefore the entire amount you paid is tax deductible.
If you have the Sustaining level membership, the fair market value of your benefits is $53, leaving a total of $197 that is tax deductible.
If you have a Conservator level membership, the fair market value of your benefits is $153, leaving a total of $347 that is tax deductible.
