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?

Six Flags Great Adventure is currently recruiting not-for-profit groups to fundraise by volunteering to staff a variety of events at the park. One organization raised over $1,500 last season by volunteering only two dates! If you would like more information about this fundraising opportunity, please contact us at [email protected] or 732-928-2000 ext 7072700.
Six Flags Great Adventure’s 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 that members are at least 18 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
- Training in operations, safety and sanitation
- Supervision to help ensure success
What would my organization be participating in while fundraising at Six Flags Great Adventure?
Your group could assist in food stands, run a game, stock retail locations, or help keep the park beautiful with Park Services. Location placement will depend on the needs of the park on that given day.
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 irs.gov/charities-and-nonprofits.
How old do you have to be to volunteer?
Minimum age for volunteering is 18 years of age or older.
Is there required training?
No training required! Once your group arrives, and receives departmental placement, we will give you the how to & important things to know.
How many volunteers do we need?
There is no minimum amount of volunteers needed. We have had groups as large as 30, depending on the calendar and available shifts for each day. Contact us early for the best selection of dates.
How many events will my organization be required to volunteer?
Six Flags Great Adventure does not have a minimum event requirement. However, organizations that return multiple times have more confidence and more fun. The more you volunteer the more money you earn! Ask our coordinator about incentives for participating in additional events. The minimum length of an event is six hours.
How much will my group make?
You can earn up to $625 for every 5 volunteers for your organization! That means, the more volunteers you have – the more you earn!
How can I get more information?

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 72 hours prior to your event so we have time to process background checks. During certain times of the year, the park can become very busy. Volunteers should be prepared for an extremely fast-paced environment.
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. Groups may also volunteer in our games department where assignments include rebounding and helping replenish prizes.
