The Fleet Science Center reserves the right to change or modify our Charitable Donation Program at any time. Submitting a request does not guarantee that the request will be fulfilled. All approved requests require a minimum of four weeks for processing. If approved, tickets will be mailed no sooner than two months from the fundraiser event date. Ticket donations are valid for one year from date of issuance; extensions cannot be granted.


Due to the volume of requests received, it takes an average of four weeks to process requests. Additionally, requests will not be immediately fulfilled if more than three months out. At this time, we are unable to respond to telephone inquiries and cannot accept requests sent by email or fax.
