It’s that time of year

“On November 30, 2021, we’ll unite for a worldwide celebration of generosity. GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together through generosity in all its forms by sharing acts of kindness and giving their voice, time, money, goods, and advocacy to support communities and causes.”

At the Greensboro Science Center, #GivingTuesday is also called #GivingZOOday. This year, our #GivingZOOday goal is $2,500 – roughly equivalent to the amount we spend to feed our animals each week. Donations of any size are appreciated as you’re helping us provide care for today while investing in tomorrow. 

Please consider supporting our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID # 56-0885727). When you make a donation to the Greensboro Science Center (GSC), you are providing critical support for animal care, education programs and wildlife conservation.

How can you help?

Encourage others to share in your support. Create a fundraiser on Facebook or Instagram Live, or add a Donate button to your Instagram story and select the GSC as your nonprofit of choice!

Give our animals a gift. Visit our Amazon Wish List and purchase an item for our animals. The majority of these items are used for enrichment – something that stimulates our animals mentally and/or physically.
