Accept the Faris Challenge!
One of our caring Philadelphia Zoo Board Members, Richard Faris and his wife Marilyn, established the Faris Challenge in 2011. Because the Annual Fund Drive is so critical this year, for every dollar you donate between now and November 30, the Faris family will match it dollar for dollar – up to $15,000. So your gift of $50 will be worth $100. If you can give more, it too will be doubled and put to good use.
Here are just some ways your gift will make a difference:
$25 admits two students who otherwise couldn’t afford to pay for a class trip to the Zoo
$50 buys fish for our birds and lettuce for our reptiles for a week
$75 buys honey for our bears for six months
$100 buys 100 lbs. of apples for our animals in the African Plains
$250 feeds one big cat for 3 weeks
