How long is a membership good for?

A membership is valid for 12 months from the time you purchase it.

Is my membership tax deductible?

The Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your gift is fully tax deductible tax to the extent allowed by law. You will receive a tax receipt with your membership cards.

Does the Conservation Council accept matching gifts?

Yes! Many employers provide a “matching gifts” service, which means when you donate to the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA), your company may match that gift to double (or even triple!) your impact. Ask your Human Resources department for details. Matching gifts cannot be applied to upgrade your membership.
