Qualified organizations

As a favorite Middle Tennessee destination, we receive a high volume of donation requests each month. We reserve an allotment of tickets to make available for community fundraising, giving priority to schools and other non-profit organizations whose work aligns with our mission of STEM education and igniting curiosity in the wonders of science in people of all ages. Please review the guidelines below to determine if your organization is eligible and the instructions on how to request donations.

Eligible organizations:
• Schools (public and private)
• 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations

We do not donate to:
• For-profit organizations
• 501(c) organization types other than (3)
• Third-party requests (for-profit organizations or individuals raising money for another group)
• Events benefiting a single person or family
• Organizations associated with political and/or legislative (lobbying) activities

How to request a donation

To request general admission tickets to Adventure Science Center for your fundraising event, please provide a Letter of Request on official letterhead, signed by the organization’s Executive Director or highest-ranking officer, and include the following required information:

  • Contact e-mail
  • A description of what the fundraiser’s proceeds will support
