Donations to Non-Profits

The Science Museum of Minnesota actively supports other non-profit groups through donations of tickets to qualified organizations for fundraising. Because of the number of requests for donations, we are not able to honor every request. Please look at the guidelines below to determine if your organization is eligible, and note the instructions on how to request donations.

All requests must be made through the form below.

As we are able, we DO donate tickets to:

  • Church groups
  • Schools
  • Community organizations
  • National non-profit organizations

We are UNABLE to donate for:

  • For-profit organizations
  • Second generation requests (for-profit organizations or individuals raising money for another group; example: corporate United Way auctions)
  • Events benefiting a single person or family

Tickets include admission to the standard museum exhibits. Reservation fees, parking, and other fees are not included. We will make one ticket donation per year per organization.

Due to unprecedented need within our community, the donation request processing time has increased. Please send requests at least one month prior to the event. If approved, donations will be mailed within one week of the event.
