Thank you for your interest in LEGOLAND® California Resort & Merlin Entertainments Group. In line with our commitment to children, LEGOLAND and SEA LIFE® Aquarium contribute tickets to local non-profit organizations whose goals are to academically, imaginatively and creatively enrich the lives of children ages 2 - 12.

LEGOLAND California focuses on the North County San Diego communities, but will also consider requests from these six Southern California counties: greater San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura.

There are many worthy children’s organizations that deserve support, but unfortunately it is not possible for us to support all of them. Based on our donation criteria, we do not donate to:

  • Individuals (see below regarding individual donation requests)
  • Incentive programs
  • Religious or political purposes
  • High school and college programs
  • Sports teams
  • Social groups

LEGOLAND California Resort is now using DonationXchange, a donation management web portal, to track and manage all community donation requests. Therefore, all requests should be made 30 days in advance of your event and must now be submitted online using this form.

Due to the volume of requests that we receive, we are unable to respond to telephone inquiries and we no longer accept requests sent by email, fax or regular mail.


Merlin Entertainments, plc and LEGOLAND California support the charity efforts of Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation which puts the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.


Merlin’s Magic Wand ensures that these children can enjoy a magical day with their family by providing tickets donated by Merlin Entertainments to one of the many attractions across the world.


They have helped thousands of children and their families by providing tickets and financial support in the form of travel grants.

More than that, where children are too sick to visit us Merlin’s Magic Wand are also developing a number of exciting Taking the Magic to the Children projects, ranging from sensory rooms to specially adapted playgrounds in local hospices and hospitals close to our attractions.

Please note that Merlin’s Magic Wand works directly with children, families and organizations that will benefit from a day out and is unfortunately unable to provide tickets to assist with fundraising through raffles and auctions.


Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation is a Public Charity and a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
