Donation Requests

Thank you for your interest in contacting the Aquatarium for support. The Aquatarium receives a vary large number of ticket donation requests from many organizations. As we are a registered not-for-profit charity we understand the need to give and receive support. Please read the following information before requesting a donation to ensure that you meet the donation request criteria.

Requests for support must be submitted on an organization’s letterhead and be received through an email to Marketing@aquatarium.ca. Requests via phone, mail and fax will not be accepted.

    1. Due to a very high volume of requests received from schools and post-secondary institutions, we are unable to support individual school fundraising activities. We do however offer discounted admission rates for schools through our School Field Trip Programs.

    3. Requests must contain the Charitable Number in order to be considered.
