If you are an employee of one of the NC Zoo Society's Corporate Partners (listed here), you are entitled to a 25 percent discount on the price of this membership. Please note that your 25 percent corporate employee discount applies to the cost of the base membership only. In order to secure the discount, you must provide your employer's Coupon Code in the "Coupon Code" field when checking out. Prices for the membership will be adjusted after the coupon code is provided. If you do not know your employer's coupon code, please contact your HR Department for that information.
Finally, please note that your employer's coupon code does not apply to any other NC Zoo Society merchandise; for example, you cannot use a discount code for a VIP tour or a "Shadow a Vet" experience. Any non-eligible item(s) purchased using a discount code will be refunded and the buyer will be given an opportunity to purchase the item(s) at regular price.
Conservator's Circle members may be able to claim as much as $4,540 of their donation as a charitable tax deduction for the first year and $1,000 for all subsequent years. Please consult a tax professional to be sure.
