Group Fundraising Information

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 parking.  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.
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:

Shift 5 Volunteers 15 Volunteers 30 Volunteers
Friday Night Buyouts $16.67 $50 $100
Weekdays in May-August $33.33 $100 $200
Memorial Day Weekend $50 $150 $300
Independence Day $50 $150 $300
Labor Day Weekend $50 $150 $300
Thrill U School Days $83.33 $250 $500

All donations will be made directly to the non-profit organization. A current W-9 Form(Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification Form) must be on file before a check can be sent.
A deposit of $5 per volunteer is required after your date has been confirmed and you’ve received a letter of agreement. The deposit will be refunded after your organization has completed its assigned shift. The deposit will be withheld if your organization fails to show for its scheduled shift.
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.
All volunteers are required to wear plain black pants, shorts or jeans and a plain all-white shirt, t-shirt or sweatshirt. No lettering, logos or decals are allowed. Women may wear a black skirt, if they prefer. No blue jeans, sweat pants or leggings are allowed. All volunteers must wear all-white or all-black low cut tennis shoes with solid laces and white or black matching socks. Sandals and flip flops are not permitted.

Visible intentional body modifications and alterations that create an unnatural or unprofessional appearance are not permitted. These include, but are not limited to: visible tattoos, earlobe expansion, body branding, dental grills, tongue splitting, tooth filing, disfiguring skin or bone implants.  A visible tattoo is any tattoo that is not covered when a volunteer is in compliance with all other Appearance Standards and by the authorized wardrobe for the volunteer's assigned position, worn as intended, and that cannot be concealed in one of the following authorized manners: (1) excluding the hands, neck, head and face, tattoos may be covered with cosmetic makeup that matches the associate’s skin tone or a single small, neutral- colored adhesive bandage (maximum size 1 ¾” x 4”); or (2) by wearing a plain, long-sleeved t-shirt or tat sleeve that matches the associate’s skin tone or is color-coordinated with the associate’s wardrobe.

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.

Requests for exceptions to Cedar Fair Appearance Standards for religious beliefs, or questions regarding the accommodation of medical restrictions, must be directed to a Human Resources representative.
