Matching Gifts

Make your gift count twice! 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.

Search in the field below to see if your employer offers a matching gift program. This is a list of companies that have matched gifts in the past, so some programs may no longer be operational. Even if you don’t see your employer listed, you may still be eligible for matching gifts. Ask your Human Resources department for details.

A GLAZA membership, Safari Society support, or any gift that brings tangible benefits to you may not be applicable in its entirety. Matching gifts cannot be applied to upgrade your membership. If you have any questions about matching gifts, please contact the Development Division at (323) 486-4253.
