Tickets For Charity: Combining Ticket Sales With The Power Of Making A Positive Impact
In their history as a company, Tickets For Charity donated more than 7 million dollars to registered charities doing important work across North America and around the globe. With the help of their customers, Tickets For Charity not only operated as a successful ticket marketplace, but made a substantial impact to non-profit projects worldwide!
Tickets For Charity was a company renowned for working with some of the biggest names in entertainment and some of the most impactful charities from around the globe. They collaborated with artists and venues to offer music, theatre and sports fans an incredible selection of event tickets online, while also supporting countless important charitable causes. Tickets For Charity often was able to offer customers the same or better prices on tickets than you could find elsewhere on the secondary ticket market, while supporting great causes in the process and using their place in the ticket industry to make a real difference.
From tickets to sold-out shows, to the hottest concert tickets and VIP packages, to the year’s most popular sports event tickets, Tickets For Charity helped live event fans find the tickets they wanted, at the prices they needed, all the while benefiting the causes that customers cared about most. Their unique ticket pricing structure benefited the original ticket vendors, registered charities, as well as Tickets For Charity as a company themselves – a win-win-win operation! Tickets For Charity made this win-win-win system a reality by: a) ensuring that the full face value ticket price went back to the original ticket holder; b) charging a predetermined donation amount in addition to the ticket price (customers could often choose the charity to which this donation went upon ticket checkout); and c) charging a nominal service fee, which went towards keeping Tickets For Charity running as a successful business and charitable supporter.
Tickets For Charity worked with some of today’s hottest artists and sports teams during their history, including top names such as U2, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Sugarland, Ke$ha, James Taylor, John Mayer, Widespread Panic, the Rolling Stones, and many more. Through these and other collaborations, Tickets For Charity generated millions of dollars in donations for partner charities, helping make an impact in the fields of education, humanitarian aid, environmental conservation, and much more. Some of the charities that Tickets For Charity proudly partnered with over the years included Big Brothers Big Sisters, CARE, Habitat For Humanity, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and Feeding America.
Tickets For Charity implemented a unique and effective business paradigm that benefited customers and charities, as well as the company themselves. Customers, performers, sports teams, and charities all responded overwhelmingly well to this way of doing business, and it completely changed the ticket industry for the better. Customers were able to find great ticket deals to the hottest events throughout the year, artists and teams were offered the opportunity to give back to their local and global communities, and charities of all kinds were introduced to a new and substantial source of funding that they could use to greaten the impact of their projects around the globe. Win-win-win!
