KSTP-TV 5 Eyewitness News Sponsor-a-thon

April 12th-25th, 2021

Thank you for your support during the 2021 KSTP Sponsor-a-thon. Together we raised over $50,000 for Como Park Zoo and Conservatory!

When you Sponsor an Animal or Garden with Como Friends you help to elevate and enrich all of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory’s daily work, fuel support for improvements, and support free admission for every visitor every day of the year. 

Support for the 2022 KSTP-TV 5 Eyewitness News Como Friends Sponsor-a-thon will provide:

  • Innovative veterinary care of Como Zoo’s animals and specialized care of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory gardens.
  • Education programs reaching thousands of students across Minnesota.
  • Conservation-focused exhibits and support for field-based conservation projects around the world.
  • Free admission for nearly 2 million yearly visitors to enjoy the plants and animals.

Sponsor an Animal or Garden or make a gift to keep Como admission free for all

Sponsorship packages include an animal plush for an animal sponsorship or a set of Marjorie McNeely Conservatory note cards for a garden sponsorship, a certificate of sponsorship and a fact sheet.

Sponsorship packages make great gifts for any occasion. Please allow 10 days for processing and delivery.
