Donation Requests

Thank you for your interest. Because of the overwhelming response, unfortunately we are no longer able to accept requests for 2018 donations. Please sign-up for our emails and newsletters to find out about future promotions at the California State Fair.

For 2019, a limited number of donations will be available beginning in January; requests are processed on a first come first served basis.


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

Donations consist of a California State Fair Fun Pack of tickets and available memorabilia for events that have raffles or auctions. We do not mail donations, if approved, your organization will need to pick up the package at the Cal Expo Administration Building.

In order to be considered, requests must be received a minimum of six weeks prior to the event and limited to one per calendar year. After the form has been submitted electronically, we will contact you if we are able to process your request.

For questions or more information, please contact
