donation requests

Each year The New Children’s Museum donates thousands of guest passes to nonprofit organizations for fundraising events benefiting our community. Please review the guidelines below to determine if your organization is eligible, and note the instructions on how to request donations.


  • Your organization must be a nonprofit using the tickets for fundraising. We are unable to donate to for-profit organizations or individuals raising money for another group.
  • The number of available guest passes is limited. We limit our donations to 25 organizations per month. Requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority to San Diego County organizations.
  • Please submit your requests 8-10 weeks in advance of your event so we can respond in time.
  • Qualifying organizations receive four general admission guest passes (no expiration; total value of $56).
  • Requests for donations are limited to one request per year, per organization.
  • We request that organizations acknowledge The New Children’s Museum in marketing materials and programs for the event. Visit our Media Kit page for logos or images.
