Donation Requests

Guest Passes for Nonprofits

The Fleet Science Center donates thousands of guest passes to nonprofit organizations for fundraising events benefiting our community. 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, which must be used for silent auction, door prizes, opportunity drawing, incentives, awards, etc. 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, and are limited to one request per year, per organization.
  • For qualifying organizations, we provide one pair of passes. Each pass is good for one theater show and a visit to our hands-on exhibit galleries valued at $49.90 total ($24.95 each) with an expiration date of one year after the event.
  • We request that organizations acknowledge the Fleet Science Center in marketing materials and programs for the event. Visit our Press Images page for logos.


  • A letter is required for all requests. It should be on the organization's letterhead and include the name and date of event; the organization's name, adress and tax identification number; and how the passes will be used (see above).
  • We must receive the letter a minimum of 60 days prior to the date you need the passes.
  • A self-addressed stamped envelope is also required for all requests. This will ensure that the passes go to the correct person at the correct address.
  • The request and self-addressed stamped envelope should be sent to:
