Donating Tickets To Those Who Served

Donating your tickets to our troops and veterans is easy, just read over this page. The directions and links to donate are below.

What is Vet Tix

The Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) is a national 501c3 nonprofit founded by veterans dedicated to support and honor the U.S. military community, veterans and their families. The Vet Tix mission is to provide tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and family activities aimed at improving mental welfare and enriching the lives of military service members and veterans.

Who We Serve

We serve ALL branches of the US Military currently-serving, honorably-discharged veterans and their families as well as the immediate family of those Killed in Action. Since 2008, we have given out over 2.6 million tickets and are active in all 50 states!

How Attending Events Helps

We know that strong family bonds and community involvement are essential tools for Veterans during active duty, post-deployment, and post-service years. Providing event tickets to the US military community shows gratitude for their years of service and encourages them to be active with their families and communities. Receiving tickets in honor of their service allows veterans to feel proud of their military time, which helps build a positive identity. Vet Tix offers such a diverse range of events that it is easy and appealing for vets to use our services, regardless of age or physical ability. We make it possible for retired veterans to take their grandchildren to Disney on Ice, for a family to enjoy an afternoon together cheering on their local team and to experience to magic of the Nutcracker ballet. Vet Tix offers multiple tickets allowing veterans to go with family and other veterans. Events that connect veterans and family builds stronger relationships. Repeated experiences at a range of events helps veterans build a better social structure, both within their families and their communities. The overall result is a higher quality of life.

What our Troops Say

I am so grateful for the opportunity to have attended The Nutcracker ballet! My daughter wanted to go for the first time ever, after seeing the advertisement for it in November. I did not think I was going to be able to take her because I was still in school, after being RIF'ed, and could not afford tickets. Then, my Air Force buddy told me about Vet Tix, and The Nutcracker was one of the events. I am so grateful to the Carolina Ballet for donating seats to veterans, and allowing my daughter the opportunity to fulfill a small dream and attend her first ballet. Military brats give up a lot when their parents deploy, and this was a nice "reward". Thank you, Carolina Ballet and Vet Tix!!

Why do our donors love us?

Vet Tix provides a rewarding and simple way for donors to give back!

Vet Tix enriches Veterans' lives, but we are also a benefit to donors. Since Veteran Tickets Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit foundation, individual ticket holders and businesses can receive tax deductions for their donations which they would not receive by donating directly to bases or military families.

The Vet Tix system is transparent. We are independently GAAP audited and have been at 96.5% to program or above each year. Venues, artist, teams get to know that their tickets are used by our Military and our Veterans. Our verification system ensures that only qualified people get access to tickets and discounts. We provide easy methods to donate shipped, will-call, print at home or mobile delivery, with complete tracking along the process.

What other Donors Say

Arizona Athletics has worked with VetTix on multiple occasions with outstanding results. VetTix has the ability to receive and distribute electronic tickets in addition to printed tickets which has been a great help as we generally need to allocate a large number of tickets quickly. VetTix has given Arizona Athletics the opportunity to say "thank you" to our veterans and at the same time fill every seat in the venue, which is a victory for everyone involved.

Dear State Street Dance Studio- I cannot thank you enough for the tickets to see the Nutcracker. My husband and I are both veterans and we went with our two sons. This event was their 1st time attending a ballet and they loved it; they can't stop talking about how awesome it was. It was a great night out for the entire family and we just can't say how much we appreciated your kindness. We have had so many opportunities to do things as a family as a result of VETTIX, for that, we are so grateful.
