Inspiring Family Volunteerism and Celebrating the Nonprofits Who Make a Difference
Disney Parks and Points of Light are celebrating family volunteerism by rewarding nonprofits and schools in the United States with Disney 1-Day Park Hopper tickets for hosting – or participating in – family volunteering activities.
Eligible organizations create and register projects, track family volunteers, and complete projects to receive complimentary park tickets from Disney. Projects can benefit the organization directly, or support another community effort or need. The more volunteers participating in your project, the more tickets you earn – up to 20 tickets! Tickets may be used to reward volunteers, as a contest prize, for a fundraiser, or in other creative ways.
Note: Tickets cannot be earned until after a project is complete.

The Power of Together Time
Family time is the cornerstone of the Disney Parks experience. Whether your family is one parent and one child, or an extended family with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, time spent volunteering together strengthens families and builds healthy, thriving communities.
The Impact of Volunteering
Disney has a legacy of volunteering in communities, and each year their VoluntEARS dedicate hundreds of thousands of hours to giving back. Volunteering is one of the best ways families can spend time together, and children who volunteer become adults who volunteer!
Disney and Points of Light Volunteer Family of the Year
Disney and Points of Light are teaming up to find the Volunteer Family of the Year. One amazing family will win a trip to Walt Disney World® Resort for a dream vacation – and will join us for a super celebration on Family Volunteer Day, Nov. 23, 2019. Plus, the organization or school that nominated the winning family will receive a grant of $10,000 to continue their great work in the community.
When people come together, amazing things can happen. Nominate a family today, and help give back to the family that is always giving!
