KC's Kids Ticket Donation Program

We are delighted to support 90 non-profit charities in the Lower Mainland each year with PNE Fair, Playland, and Winter Fair tickets, through our KC’s Kids Ticket Donation Program.

Through the first quarter of each year, we welcome requests for the upcoming season from registered non-profit charities that would like to receive a donation of tickets for the children they serve who have economic, physical, emotional, or cognitive challenges.

Eligibility Guidelines

Due to the high number of donation requests we receive, to be eligible the below guidelines must be met:

  • Your organization must be a registered non-profit charity (charitable registration number required).
  • Your organization must be located within the Lower Mainland.
  • Your organization serves children (under 13 years of age) who have economic, physical, emotional, or cognitive challenges.

Application Deadline

Applications for 2023 have now closed. All charities that applied will be notified of the status of their request by April 30, 2023. Applications for the 2024 season will open in the new year.

Ticket Allocation Process

Recipient charities are selected through a random draw until a pre-determined allotment of tickets has been allocated. Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee tickets will be donated.
