The Valley Zoo Development Society is taking the lead role in the stunning and sustainable transformation of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. This is only made possible with the amazing support we receive from schools, businesses, corporations and community groups.

From hosting a school bake sale or a community car show to company bbq’s, retail “round-up” drives, and celebrating life’s special moments, the ways in which you can fund-raise with us are almost limitless.

We thank you for being strong stewards for animal welfare and environmental conservation, and we look forward to working with you!


Present your business as a strong community supporter and engage your employees and customers in an exciting fundraiser!  Opportunities include:

  • SALES EVENTS: donate a portion of proceeds to the cause;
  • PAPER ICONS: sell and display our paper-animal-icons in store; and
  • ROUND-UPS: give patrons the opportunity to “Round Up” their purchases with a donation.

The possibilities are truly endless!

With a great campaign, companies can stand apart from the competition, increase sales and demonstrate a meaningful commitment to their consumers. 

We are happy to work with you to develop a program that fits your needs.  Please contact for more information and to get started today!


There’s an amazing world right here, in our own river valley – filled with animals of every shape and size, plants of every form and color and natural spaces that can only be described as magical.

We invite your school to join us in making our planet a better place for humans and animals to live and thrive. When you raise funds for the Valley Zoo Development Society, you are helping to create animal ambassadors that care about global habitats and the natural world around us.

There are so many exciting ways that your school can support the zoo, below are only just a couple of ideas – we want you to use your imagination and do something incredible for our planet:

  • QUARTERS FOR CONSERVATION: see which class can collect the most coins over a school year
  • A-THONS: hold a bike-a-thon or a walk-a-thon
  • SALES: bake sales, craft sales, art auction
  • DONATIONS: Donate your recyclables to the zoo
  • TOURNAMENTS: Hold a tournament (basketball, volleyball, dodgeball, ball-hockey, etc) with the registration fees being donated to support the zoo

So many exciting ways to get involved!

We want to hear your creative ideas and will work with your school to make sure that your event is fun, memorable and successful.  Please email to get started today!
