Is your non-profit organization looking for a unique fundraiser?
Do you have volunteers who hate peddling candy? Has your organization lost money because a fundraising car wash or fair was rained out? Increase your organization's volunteer participation rate AND have a built-in guarantee of funds by taking advantage of a unique opportunity to put the "fun" back in fundraising!
Six Flags Fiesta Texas is currently recruiting not-for-profit groups to fundraise by volunteering to staff a variety of events at the park. One organization raised up to $6,000 last season by volunteering multiple dates! If you would like more information about this fundraising opportunity, please contact Richard Roque, Human Resources Supervisor at raRoque@sftp.com or 210-697-5113.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas' Human Resources department administers the program. The mission and goals of your organization must be clear and long-term in nature. The group must have a strong and committed leadership, have a 501c3 tax-exempt status as defined by the IRS, and a minimum of 15 volunteers that are at least 16 years of age.
Six Flags will provide the following:
- Thrilling environment that entices group members to participate
- Minimum earnings per volunteer
- Coordinated scheduling
- One complimentary ticket per person to return to the park
- One complimentary lunch voucher per volunteer
- Training in operations, safety and sanitation
- Supervision to help ensure success
- Your group will receive its donation 1-2 weeks after each event
What would my organization be participating in while fundraising at Six Flags Fiesta Texas?
We utilize non-profit organizations as servers, food runners and bussers for group picnics in our picnic pavilion. Occasionally we'll have organizations staff similar positions at food locations inside the park.
Does my group need to be identified as a 501c3 organization?
Yes, it is required that your group provides a 501c3 Letter of Determination from the IRS. Six Flags may accept other forms of tax exempt status such as 501c7. For more information, please visit www.irs.gov/charities/charitable/index.html.
How old do you have to be to volunteer?
The minimum age is 16. Some events may require volunteers to be 18 years or older. We require at least two adult chaperones (18+) for each group and one adult chaperone for every ten volunteers who are 16 and 17 years old.
Is there required training?
Every volunteer that participates in our fundraising program is required to attend a booster orientation which includes customer service, food safety and general safety. These training sessions are held at the park throughout the season. Your organization will receive contributions for this time. The training expires 12 months from the date attended.
How many volunteers do we need?
The average booster event requires 15 volunteers, although we have some events with a different minimum.
How many events will my organization be required to volunteer?
Six Flags Fiesta Texas does not have a minimum event requirement. However, organizations that return multiple times have more confidence and more fun. Ask our coordinator about incentives for participating in additional events.
How much will my group make?
Six Flags Fiesta Texas has a per volunteer minimum. A group with 20 volunteers will make $1,280 for an 8-hour event.
How can I get more information?
If you would like more information about this fundraising opportunity, please contact Richard Roque, Human Resources Supervisor at raRoque@sftp.com or 210-697-5113.
Can anyone be a volunteer?
All booster volunteers represent your organization and our company to our guests. We request a complete list of all volunteers no less than 73 hours prior to your event so we have time to process background checks.
What kind of things will we be doing?
Typical assignments in culinary services include bussing tables/patios, pouring sodas, preparing and filling food orders for a cashier, scooping ice cream, cleaning, doing dishes and prepping food like pizza and sandwiches.
