Matching Gifts

Make a Gift. Get it Matched. Double the Contribution!

Giving to Riverbanks Zoo and Garden has never been so easy. You can double—or even triple—your gift to the Zoo by participating in your employer’s matching gift program. Through this matching funds program, your company will match your gift, thus doubling your contribution. The additional funds Riverbanks receives through matching gifts enables us to continue to expand, renovate and rebuild, enhancing our ability to remain one of the country’s top zoos.
