In-Kind Donations


Welcome to the Tampa Bay Lightning In-Kind donation page!

The goal of this program is to help local nonprofits raise funds for their respective causes. We take pride in being able to provide fundraising support to nonprofit groups, all while strengthening the Lightning's relationships across the community.

Each year we are asked to support thousands of worthwhile charitable events via the donations of In-Kind merchandise. We make it our top priority to donate to as many organizations as possible and ask you to please submit your donation request below.

Instructions

1. We ask that you please submit your donation request at least 6 weeks prior to your event. This will give our staff time to review your information and respond in a timely manner.

2. If you have your organization's 501(c)(3) document (Not Tax-Exempt form) and the organization's Tax ID Number, please submit them with your donation request.

If you are a volunteer and do not have this information, please submit the nonprofit organization name, event name, and details of the event.

3. Please be aware that all donation items must directly benefit the fundraising efforts of a nonprofit organization.

Commonly Asked Questions

Each year, we receive thousands of donation requests. In order to fulfill as many requests as possible, we ask that your organization only submit one request per calendar year.

All donation requests will be responded to within 3-4 weeks of the specific event. Email responses will come from tampabaylightning@approveforgood.com . Please be sure to check your junk or spam email if you do not receive a response in that time frame.

We are unfortunately unable to accept any sort of personal items to be autographed by players or members of the hockey operations department.

Please feel free to submit a donation request as a volunteer. In some instances, however, volunteer requests will be rejected. A rejection occurs if we have already donated an item directly to a staff member of an organization.

Unfortunately, due to the success of the Tampa Bay Lightning and over 200 straight sellout games, we are unable to donate tickets for your event.

We strive to fulfill as many donation requests as possible. All organizations are more than welcome to submit a request, but priority will be given to local non-profits.
