Your membership contribution, less than fair market value of goods and services received, equals the tax-deductible amount. However, you should consult with tax regulations or your tax advisor to confirm the tax-deductibility of your contribution.

Nannies can be added to a Premium Level Category membership. In order for your nanny to bring your children to the Zoo without you
she/he will have to be a named guest. Naming a guest limits you to bringing only that person for the duration of the Membership, and you cannot change or remove a Named Guest. She/he will also have to present a photo ID at the time of entrance.

Membership cards will arrive via mail in 7 to 10 days. There is a $5.00 fee for lost or damaged membership cards.
