Soaky Mountain Waterpark Charitable Donations Guidelines
Soaky Mountain Waterpark takes great pride in supporting our community partners whenever possible with donations of a pair of passes to our waterpark. Due to the overwhelming number of requests that Soaky receives, the following guidelines have been established to assist non-profit organizations to understand our charitable guidelines.
Waterpark Admission Donations:
Soaky Mountain Waterpark supports non–profit organizations, in our local region, that support programs that make lasting, positive changes in the community and that aid in the improvement of the well-being and happiness of families and children.
Make a Wish, Give Kids the World, and Dream Foundation for Adults and Children:
Families that are experiencing serious/terminal illnesses may request a donation to Soaky Mountain Waterpark that includes the immediate family through licensed organizations such as those mentioned above. No personal applications will be accepted.
While Soaky Mountain Waterpark respects the efforts of all non-profit organizations, due to the number of donation requests and budgetary guidelines, limitations have been necessary and are listed below.
We do not provide passes or monetary donation support to:
- For-profit or political organizations
- Employee, student, or volunteer incentive programs
- Individuals or teams participating in fundraising efforts such as walk-a-thons, contests, etc. benefiting a larger non-profit group.
Soaky Mountain Waterpark has several non-profit organizations that receive our direct support for their causes. A few to be mentioned are:

Discount Ticket Fundraiser Purchases:
If your qualifying, non-profit organization would like to work with Soaky on discounted tickets, we have a package that can be purchased for fundraising events, which is a substantial savings from standard ticket rates. This option is:
- Buy 2, Get 2 Free Soaky single-day admission passes for $80 plus tax.
* These prices do not include taxes.
Sales tax must be added unless proper documentation is provided showing your organization is exempt in the State of Tennessee or has a Federal 501c3 status.
ALL requests must be submitted no less than 30 days prior to the event date on the non-profit organization’s letterhead including the mailing address. Submissions may be e-mailed to [email protected]. REQUESTS LEFT ON A VOICEMAIL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED NOR WILL THE CALL BE RETURNED.
If your non-profit organization does not meet the listed qualifications, Soaky Mountain Waterpark will not be able to make a donation.
