Aquarium Tickets on a Piece of Coral

The Aquarium receives nearly 1,000 requests for admission passes or other donations every year, which has necessitated our establishment of the following criteria:

  • The purpose of the request must support at least one of three areas: environmental conservation, science education, or underserved populations in the Hampton Roads area.
  • Requests must be made in writing, on your organization's letterhead.
  • Please indicate the date of the event and its purpose.
  • Requests must be received at least four weeks in advance of the event date in order to be considered for a donation.
  • Requests that conflict with the policies of the Aquarium, the City of Virginia Beach, the Aquarium Foundation’s fund-raising goals, or which duplicate services to United Way agencies already supported by the City’s United Way campaign will not be fulfilled.
  • One request per organization will be accepted per calendar year.
  • Third-party requests cannot be fulfilled.

Does Your Request Fulfill These Criteria?
