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’s Magic Wand is the charity of the world’s second largest global visitor attractions group, Merlin Entertainments. Formed in 2008, Merlin’s Magic Wand looks to deliver magical experiences to disadvantaged children across the world – and since we began, more than hundreds of thousands of children and their families have already benefitted.

Many children, through serious illness, disability or other disadvantage, are not able to enjoy the kind of days out that others take for granted. By providing tickets and financial support in the form of travel grants, Merlin’s Magic Wand aims to ensure that these children can enjoy a magical day with their friends and family at Merlin Entertainments Group’s attractions across the world. More than that, where children are too sick to visit us we are also developing a number fun play projects in hospices and hospitals close to our attractions.

To find out more about Merlin's Magic Wand, the eligibility criteria, and how you can apply, please visit Merlin’s Magic Wand has been set up to work directly with children, families and organizations that will benefit from a day out. Unfortunately we are unable to provide tickets to other charities to assist them with their fundraising through raffles and auctions.
