Tired of selling candy bars and magazine subscriptions? Valleyfair has a great fundraising program that may work for your non-profit organization. By spending a day working at the park, non-profit organizations can earn money and have fun at the same time!
Valleyfair’s Fundraising program allows non-profit organizations to volunteer as a group at Valleyfair. Groups participate by working in an assigned position in the park. We can accommodate groups ranging in size from five to twenty people. All volunteers must be at least 16 years of age or older.
How much will we make?
The donation made by Valleyfair will correspond with the number of volunteers in your group. In other words, the more people you have in your group, the more money your organization will earn! Below is a sample of earnings based off of group size. Depending on the day(s) you are interested in, group sizes can be much larger.
Number of Volunteers* Total Earnings
- 10: $750
- 11-15: $1000
- 16-20: $1,250
- 21-25: $1,500
*We ask that your group be at least 10 people strong. However, we will accept groups of less than 10. In such cases the pay is pro-rated at $75 per person.
When would we be paid?
Your organization should receive the donation check within 2-3 weeks from the date you volunteered.
How long will we have to work?
The shifts available for fundraising vary depending upon the park operating hours. However, you need to be at Valleyfair one hour before your shift starts so we can sign in your group and provide a brief orientation and training before your shift begins.
During your shift you will be assigned a ½ hour break time. You can bring a bag lunch or you can purchase food in our employee cafeteria. Please be sure to tell your group to consider eating prior to getting to Valleyfair because breaks are usually about 4 hours after the start of a shift. After your shift is completed, your group may go back into the park until closing.
Groups that work on days when the park closes at 5:00, 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. may not have the opportunity to go back into the park. We will not be issuing starlight passes for park sellouts or early shifts.
Dress Code Requirements
We provide a Valleyfair polo shirt for your group workers to wear. Your group workers must wear tan pants for their shift. Shoes should be black or white, non-slip sneakers. Sandals, clogs, open toe, or open back shoes are not permitted.
