The Tech Museum of Innovation gets many requests each year for ticket donations, program support, etc. The Tech works diligently to support a broad range of community requests to cultivate Science and Technology and to inspire the innovator in everyone.
The Tech will review each request in comparison to the relevancy to our mission, values and goals of the organization. Institutions that request ticket donations should be focused on education, children, the community or have sponsorship/partnership ties with The Tech programs and activities.
For school fundraisers, preference is given to schools that have visited the museum within the past two years.
Please note that organizations that are considered overtly political or religious and events that are outside The Tech's mission and goals, will not be granted a ticket donation.
If you are a charitable organization and wish to request a ticket donation or would like us to participate in a community event, please include a legal-sized, stamped, self-addressed envelope for your receipt (see pictured example on the right). Mail your request to:
Attn: Ticket Donations
The Tech Museum of Innovation
201 South Market Street
San Jose, CA 95113
Please send your request on company or your organization's letterhead. Include the Federal Tax ID number, the Mission statement, and date of the event and the deadline required to receive the donation. Also, make sure to include a contact person, along with the address to send the donation.
Due to the volume of requests we receive, your request will be reviewed every month, and must be received thirty days prior to the event to be eligible for consideration.
Donation requests that are submitted with less than 30 days notice may be declined. The maximum donation that we send to a requesting organization is usually four general admission tickets per year. Tickets must be used prior to their expiration date.
Please do not send the request via email, only requests received via USPS will be reviewed for receipt of donations.
Thank you for the opportunity to support education and science in our community.
