Many friends of the zoo support Hellabrunn with an annual donation, which gives them membership to the Hellabrunn Sponsor Circle. Thanks to this financial support, the zoo has been able to realise building improvement projects to modernise several of the enclosures at the zoo.
One hundred per cent of all monies donated via the sponsor circle goes to enclosure improvement and new construction projects at the zoo. This ensures your entire donation goes to the welfare of the animals at the zoo.
You can support the zoo by donating as little as €80 euros per year. Your financial contribution will be displayed under the relevant sponsor circle fundraising project. This way you can see and experience the benefit of your support for yourself. -> Fundraising projects
The sponsor circle event calendar and periodic newsletter (via email) keep you up-to-date and always in touch with what is happening at the zoo. -> Event calendar
The Hellabrunn Sponsor Circle (Förderkreis Hellabrunn) was launched in 1973 as an initiative of the then-Mayor of the City of Munich, Georg Kronawitter. Over the years its members, which include many well-known personalities, institutions and companies, have given the zoo both moral and financial support.

Every year, the sponsor circle supports a fundraising project. Thanks to its support over the decades, the zoo has been able to realise many construction projects to modernise existing enclosures and build new ones. These include
- sun shade sail for the South American sea lion enclosure,
- equipment for the converted wolf enclosure,
- new climbing frame in the silvery gibbons’ outdoor enclosure,
- technical upgrade for the reef tank in the Jungle Pavilion,
- mechanical feeding tree for the Giraffe Savannah,
- steel feed balls for the elephants and
- resting and viewing platform for the tigers.
See for yourself what could be achieved with your financial support at Hellabrunn Zoo! The fundraising projects are marked with a sponsor circle sign at the respective animal enclosures.
Hellabrunn would like to thank you for your support with a programme of events specially put together for the sponsor circle. This allows you to experience many behind-the-scenes adventures the zoo.
Due to the current situation, the upcoming sponsor circle events will be announced on a short-term basis on the Hellabrunn Zoo website and in our newsletter instead of the annual programme.
