Donation Requests

Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we can only support recognized non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations or schools within California.

Donations consist of a California State Fair Fun Pack (4 GA Tickets, Parking, 4 Ride or Monorail Tickets; a $99 value), 4 Unlimited Ride Wristbands, and Fair swag.

Donation Request Guidelines

  • The organization must be a charitable, 501(c) organization or school.
  • The organization must be a local, in-state charitable foundation.
  • The donation must be for a fundraising event.
  • A valid Tax ID number must be provided.
  • All requests must be received a minimum of six (6) weeks before the event.
  • Your organization’s 990 forms must have been updated in the past two years.
  • Your organization may only receive one (1) donation from the Cal Expo & State Fair within a calendar year (January – December).
