  • Your organization must be raising funds for educational programs in Illinois for children in grades Pre-K through 12.
  • Your ticket donation request must be submitted via the online donation form at least two months prior to the date of the fundraising event. The online form must be filled out completely in order for your request to be considered. Fax, email, letter or phone requests are not accepted.
  • Your non-profit organization must have 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. You must enter the Tax Exempt ID number on the online form in order for your request to be considered.
