Program Summary

The Worlds of Fun FUN Raising program allows non-profit organizations to volunteer as a group at Worlds of Fun & Oceans of Fun.  Groups participate by working in an assigned position in the park.  All volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and cannot be currently employed by Worlds of Fun & Oceans of Fun.

Volunteers must bring a valid original state or school issued photo ID as proof of age each time they fundraise at the park.  Volunteers who do not bring proper identification will not be permitted to fundraise.  Working adult chaperones are required for any volunteers under the age of 18.

Donations to Your Organization

Your non-profit organization can raise a lot of money fundraising at Worlds of Fun & Oceans of Fun!

Shift 5 Volunteers 15 Volunteers 30 Volunteers
First $250 $750 $1500
Second $275 $825 $1650
Third + $300 $900 $1800

These rates are based on all volunteers completing a full 8-hour shift in good standing.  Donations will be prorated based on the number of volunteers and the shift length.  If your organization fails to complete a shift in good standing (i.e. brings fewer volunteers than expected, arrives late or leaves early), $10 per volunteer will be deducted.

Your organization can earn extra money by volunteering during the following times:

Types of Positions Available

Most shifts will be in the Food & Beverage division working at one of our catered group picnics, restaurants, snack stands, or specialty food carts. Organizations might also be scheduled in other areas such as Grounds, Games, Merchandising, or Park Operations. Organizations will be assigned jobs based on business needs.

Dress Code & Appearance Standards

All volunteers are required to wear plain khaki/tan pants, shorts, or capris and a plain all-white shirt with a collar (a white polo or button-up shirt). No lettering, logos, or decals are allowed. Women may wear a khaki skirt, if they prefer. No blue jeans, sweat pants or leggings are allowed.

Sandals, flip flops, aqua shoes, and mid or high-top tennis shoes are not permitted.

Any person not meeting the grooming requirements will not be allowed to work and the shift will be considered to have been completed not in good standing.
