To submit a formal request for donations to your event or non-profit organization, please create a profile on our partner website, Donation Match:
Pacific Park receives hundreds of donation requests annually and due to this high volume of inquiries, cannot honor every request made. Eligibility for donations is weighted by time, proximity and alignment with Pacific Park’s core values as a safe, friendly, and affordable place for visitors and families. If your event meets our eligibility requirements, you will be able to request a donation from our profile. Once your request has been submitted through the Donation Match portal above, the Pacific Park community relations team will review your request and provide a response within 2 business weeks.

Special Lightings of the Pacific Wheel
We get many requests to light the Pacific Wheel for various causes and reasons. Unfortunately, we cannot honor all requests, and due to the high volume of these requests, Pacific Park no longer offers pro bono wheel lightings. All special lightings of the Pacific Wheel are considered sponsorships and can be arranged through the Marketing and Events department.
